The Easton Fire Department honored the best of the best Wednesday.

During an awards ceremony at the Pomfret Club, Andrew Wuttke was named by the Easton Kiwanis Club as firefighter of the year.

Wuttke found someone sleeping inside a home on fire in July and managed to get that person to safety.

Several other awards were handed out, including a "stork award" to one firefighter who helped deliver a baby.
