GILFORD - Officer Curtis Mailloux says he was just doing his job the night of Feb. 8, when he saved an elderly couple from a house fire.
The police department and the town of Gilford saw his actions as heroic and both awarded him honors at the March 11 Board of Selectmen meeting.
Mailloux's family was on hand to see him receive a medal for life saving with valor which he will wear on his uniform every day. The town also awarded him an extra day's pay.
Last month, Mailloux was first on scene at a house fire on Old Lakeshore Road. He pulled an elderly couple from the home one at a time.
The couple did not feel up to going to the ceremony, but their grandson, Belmont Police officer Derek Gray was there in their honor.
The Grays are recovering well, but their home will need some renovations.
