SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- In the wake of a deadly explosion in Sun Prairie, the Salvation Army is warning about scams targeting people who want to help the victims.
Firefighter Captain Cory Barr died in the explosion. Since then, there have been a number of fundraisers for his family and others impacted by the blast.
The Salvation Army says it's also gotten reports of a fake fundraiser.
"Two young ladies had come by and asked them to make donations, they were collecting for the Salvation Army. And, I guess when they first approached the husband, he said no, I don't think they do it that way. So they left and evidently came back when he was gone and the wife gave them some money," said Steve Heck with the Salvation Army.
Police in Sun Prairie are asking anyone with information on the suspected scammers to contact them.
