89-year old David Chandler was rescued by neighbours who noticed his curtains on fire at his home in Pontypridd.
David had fallen asleep on Saturday night when a fire, thought to have been caused by an electric heater, spread through his downstairs bedroom.
Luckily his neighbours braved the fire and pulled him out.
The downstairs was gutted by the fire while there is substantial smoke damage upstairs.
The flames burned through the ceilings and floorboards rendering the home uninhabitable for now.
Friends and family have set up a go fund me page to help David rebuild his home here
