A neighbor saw smoke coming from the victim's home and called 911. Another went and tried kicking down the door to get the man out at around 7:30 this morning.

Firefighters were on the scene in a matter of minutes--flames were not showing but heavy smoke had filled the entire house.

The victim was the only one home when the fire started.
