Downtown Bozeman

A gas explosion rocked Downtown Bozeman this morning at 8:12 am.  The pile of rubble includes Lily Lu, Boodles and the R Bar just to name a few.  looking-north

Our friend Courtney send us a few pictures from downtown since she works just a few one block from the explosion.



Luckily there have been no casualties reported (UPDATE but 1 or 5 people are still missing)

For more info.

UPDATE: I just found out that my dad was on the corner of Rouse and Main (the view from the second picture) when the blast occured!

    This is just so sad! I’m amazed and thankful that the damage to life was so minimal. I’m also hopeful that the city will come together and rebuild. . . it’s one of the things that makes this place so great. I *heart* Bozeman!

    my brother mark left his truck parked behind the R Wednesday night (well, behind Boodles, next to the kitchen where the explosion ocurred) and Im pretty sure he doesnt’ have a truck anymore. But his quote: “Kels, I can buy a new truck but I can’t buy a new R Bar.”
