Salvatore's Pizza in Sun Prairie back open following explosion

Posted: Updated:

SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- Salvatore's Pizza reopened full time on Thursday following the deadly explosion in Sun Prairie last month.

It's located just a block away from where the explosion occurred. The restaurant was closed for repairs for about three weeks until Wednesday night. Owner Patrick DePula says the community will never forget what happened July 10, but being back open is helping the healing process. 

"It was a great feeling to be open again," said DePula. "And after three weeks of being closed, something we never anticipated ever happening. It kind of brought a sense of normalcy back to all of us."

Most of the damage to the pizzeria was on the outside, including the site's windows.
