10 years ago today downtown Bozeman was rocked by a natural gas explosion.  Five historical buildings and dozen's of businesses were damaged in the explosion that shook Bozeman and the surrounding area just after 8 a.m. on March 5th, 2009.

The explosion was caused by a 70-year old natural gas line that leaked, according to the New York Times.  Tara Reistad was working at at ground zero and was killed in the explosion. She was the only person to loose her life in what many consider the worst disaster in Bozeman history.

Ten years later here's what it looks today.
