Woman saved from California chimney, then arrested

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

THOUSAND OAKS, CA (AP) — A woman stuck in the chimney of a Southern California house has been rescued and arrested.

Ventura County fire Capt. Ron Oatman says 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.

Police say Nunez-Figueroa knows the owner of the home in Thousand Oaks, who wasn’t there. They wouldn’t elaborate.

She 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 says firefighters destroyed the chimney and damaged the roof.
