The four families who lost their homes because of an apartment-building fire in Southern Door County on Dec. 18 were on hand for an event where a teenage girl was hailed as a hero. The fire in a building — converted to living quarters from a tavern/dance hall/bowling alley on Rocky Road in the Town of Union — was discovered as one family sat down for a later supper. Another family's children were ready for bed. Heather Hamilton, 14, went into action, according to Brussels-Union-Gardner (BUG) Fire Chief Curt Vandertie.
