Ludvik Dolezal, 58, from Novy Bydzov, in the Czech Republic, has been homeless for years.
He claims that one day he "simply decided to quit my job" and has been living rough ever since.
To stay warm, the 58-year-old now burns whatever he can find.
Dolezal then sleeps in the ashes for warmth.
Every night I lay down with hot ash in my clothes and cover myself to keep warm. I look like hell then.I had everything – jacket, boots, mattresses and even a duvet. But I burnt everything because there was nothing else to keep the fire going.People help me, they bring some old tyres here for example and I burn them.I keep the fire going all day and in the evening at 7.30 I go to sleep.
