New Bremen Firefighters Honored With Statue

Staff Writer

The statue of a New Bremen firefighter, recently installed to honor New Bremen’s firefighters, stood out starkly against the fresh fallen snow and the Lockkeeper’s House in the background last week shortly after being installed.

The six foot-tall statue that honors New Bremen's past, present and future firefighters, was commissioned by the family of the late Ken Jutte, who along with the late John Garman, was killed fighting a fire at Hoge Lumber in New Knoxville on October 1, 2003.
