Woman Rescued from Chimney


THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – A woman stuck in the chimney of a home in Thousand Oaks was rescued and arrested.

Ventura County fire Capt. Ron Oatman said firefighters responding to neighbors’ reports of a woman crying had to chisel away much of the chimney and lubricate it with dish soap Sunday to free 30-year-old Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa.

The Ventura County Star reports she was arrested on suspicion of illegal entry and giving false information to police.

The homeowner told KABC in Los Angeles that he met Nunez-Figueroa online and dated her briefly, but he recently ended the relationship. The unidentified man was not home at the time of the incident.

Nunoz-Figueroa had no clear injuries but was taken to a hospital for evaluation. Police didn’t know if she’d hired an attorney, and no phone listing for her could be found.

Oatman said firefighters destroyed the chimney and damaged the roof.
