PITTSBURGH | - A suburban Pittsburgh man whose home caught on fire and partially collapsed slept through the entire ordeal.

He was awakened by firefighters doing a walk-through of the home more than two hours later.

Ross Township Fire Marshal John Reubi says he was "flabbergasted" that anyone survived the blaze. It broke out around 2:40 a.m. Sunday and was reported by a passer-by.

Firefighters were initially unable to search for victims because part of the roof collapsed. After controlling the fire, firefighters walked through and found the man in a bedroom. Reubi says it appeared the man had no idea what was going on.
