There are quite a few pieces to pick up, but the mayor says that's not stopping Prophetstown from rebuilding.
"It won't keep Prophetstown down," says Steve Swanson. "Prophetstown will be back."
Day by day, things are slowly getting back to normal in a town that watched a fire destroy eight buildings downtown.
"We had a nice looking Main Street, not so much now," Swanson adds.
"We can't afford to lose anymore business," says Cindy Eriks, owner of Cindy Jean's Restaurant.
Traffic is back on Main Street Tuesday and the doors are open for businesses not damaged by yesterday's fire.
"What are we going to do tomorrow, that's what's on their minds now," exclaims Swanson.
The town remains under a boil order after firefighters emptied all of the water tower's supply.
"It could be Friday or Monday before [water returns to normal,]" says Swanson. "I'm hoping not, but we'll see."
Dolores Francis has owned her craft and variety shop for 35 years, and spent the day taking out what she could from her old store. It didn't burn down to the ground, but Dolores says it's a total loss even the brand new awning she just got last week.
"Yes it was beautiful," she says. "I hadn't even paid for it yet."
She says while her store is gone, that won't stop her from doing what she loves.
"I love to draw and I'm not ready for the rocking chair," she adds.
There will be a meeting on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Prophet Hills Country Club for the community to come together and help figure out what's next.
