After discovering the blaze last November, Robert Noubine helped his brother Jean-Paul out of bed, covered him in duvets and wheeled him out of the house.
Firefighter Ross Allen was also among those recognised at the at the annual Kent Fire and Rescue Service award ceremony this week for his part in the safe rescue of a suicide victim in Windmill Street, Gravesend, in July.
KFRS chief executive Ann Millington said: “Ross put himself in considerable danger to save this man’s life and we commend him and his colleagues.”
