GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A disabled Vietnam veteran was rescued from his burning home in Marshall County Thursday afternoon.

Fire crews arrived to put out the fire at the Ligon Street home around 1:30 p.m.

Neighbors said they checked on the man and discovered he was still in the home and pulled him out through a window.

"We knocked the window out. When we got his legs, I couldn't get him out, so Clint came on up and snatched him, so we got him out the window," said Johnny Alexander.

Medics treated 66-year-old Metalmus Nesmith on-scene for smoke inhalation.

Fire officials believe the fire started at the kitchen stove.
