SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (WKOW) --  Several buildings will be closed Wednesday due to an explosion that rocked downtown Sun Prairie Tuesday night.

All summer school classes at all Sun Prairie school locations are canceled July 11, according to a post on the Sun Prairie Schools Facebook page.

The post also says other activities that were scheduled at the high school Wednesday are canceled. The high school is being used by the Red Cross to assist people impacted by the explosion. 

Sun Prairie City Hall is closed Wednesday, according to city leaders. The building, on East Main Street, is near the explosion site. 

The closed buildings are expected to reopen on Thursday. Canceled school/activities are also expected to resume Thursday.
