St. Anna Has Memorial to Fallen Firefighter Koeser

ST. ANNA, Wis. (WTAQ) - The tiny town of St. Anna now has a memorial to a firefighter who died in an explosion there.

33-year-old Steven Koeser was killed a year ago Wednesday, when his fellow firefighters sprayed water and foam into a trash bin outside a factory – and the bin exploded.

His memorial was dedicated outside the St. Anna fire station on the first anniversary of his death.

It has a statue, a plaque, flag poles, and 3 benches. Each bench is shaped like a peanut – which was Koeser’s nickname.

Department official Adam Schuh said all of his colleagues remember Koeser every day – but still they needed a place where he could be remembered by them and everyone else.
