Still, he considers what might have happened if he were home during the incident.

"For two nights, I had nightmares about it," Milstead said, adding he imagined being engulfed in flames.

"I would stay awake two, three hours at a time. I couldn't sleep because I was dreaming about it," he said. 

Milstead will obtain a city permit to demolish the structure he once called home. He plans to replace it with a doublewide mobile home.

"I'm going to start from scratch and build myself back up," he said.
