Liberty Grove honors Ellison Bay explosion hero

Over 10 years after an explosion rocked the community, the town of Liberty Grove is honoring one of its heroes from that day. Cheri Nikole Simon was 12 years old when a propane tank explosion killed two people, injured several others, and destroyed nearby buildings. Simon escaped, but went back into the damaged building to rescue her younger cousin. Liberty Grove Town Chairperson John Lowry says Simon, who is now an EMT in the Phoenix area, deserves the overdue recognition.

Simon will be formally recognized for her bravery at the Liberty Grove Town Hall during the board’s Wednesday meeting at 5:45 p.m.
