An East End Hamilton man is recovering in hospital after a fire in his home on Cloverdale Avenue in the Rosedale neighbourhood.
Firefighters were called to the home early yesterday morning and found the sleeping man in a lower level apartment.
He was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but is expected to survive.
While the fire marshall is investigating, the Hamilton Fire Department suspects the fire was caused by careless smoking.
There's no damage estimate, as yet.
