    ‘He was really in shock, so we just picked him up and moved him to the edge of the road,’ Mr Delboux told 7 News.

    ‘I was happy I was able to get him out of the house… I’m glad that he’s still alive.’

    The man collapsed outside his burning home, where emergency services performed CPR on him.

    Mr Wells was rushed to Concord Hospital in a critical condition.

    Police on Sunday say the fire is not being treated as suspicious.
