Blaze bedsit branded 'a death trap'.
Fran Connell had to fight his way through the flames and escape by the front door of his southside Dublin home.
He said he should have been able to get out of a back window in the Davitt's flat complex, Galtymore Road, Drimnagh, but that he's never been able to open it.
Mr Connell, who was treated for smoke inhalation, claimed: "The window has always been jammed. There is only the one way out - so it's a death trap."
A council spokesman said the windows met all legal requirements and that no complaint had been received.
