Some might say hockey player Martin Moioffer has ice water in his veins. Moioffer, 18, was honored Wednesday by the Fire Department and the state fire marshal's office with the Young Hero award, for saving the lives of his host guardian Robin Kellow and her dog during a house fire last month on Hobart Street. "It takes a special individual to perform the kind of act that you performed without any training, without any special equipment," fire Chief Robert Pyburn said during the brief ceremony at Fire Headquarters on High Street. "It was truly a heroic act, and we appreciate what you did, and I'm sure Robin appreciates it more than anybody else in the room." "I've thanked him over and over and over," said Kellow, standing at the back of the ceremony.
