By Fox 40 News Staff. Two local firefighters were honored tonight for going above and beyond the call of duty this year.
Captain Dan Peck and Lieutenant Aaron Coney of the West Corners Fire Department each received the William Grace Firefighter of the Year award for rescuing a woman in an apartment fire in Endicott earlier this year.
Peck and Coney arrived on scene and found a woman lying on the floor on the second floor of the building.
She and two other victims were safely rescued by the West Corners District.
