Somonauk officer being hailed as a hero

Posted by wlpo on October 20, 2016

A Somonauk police officer is being credited with saving a couple lives.

Back on Tuesday night, Steve Kuester was on patrol when he smelled smoke coming from a home on Cook Court. He woke up two people inside of a home that was quickly filling with smoke. The folks in the house were checked out on the scene by paramedics.

Firefighters contained the fire to an attached garage. While the house had smoke detectors, they weren’t working.

Officer Kuester will be presented with a Life Saving Award at the November meeting of the Somonauk Village Board.
