    Burglar stuck in chimney dies after homeowner lights fire


    A burglar stuck in a chimney died Saturday after the homeowner lit a fire in the fireplace, California authorities said.

    The burglar climbed in the chimney Friday night to rob the home in the small city of Huron but became stuck, Fox 40 reports. The man was discovered just before 3 p.m. Saturday when the homeowner came home and lit the fireplace.


    The homeowner heard the burglar scream from inside the chimney and worked to put the fire out, causing the house to fill up with smoke, the station reported.

    The Fresno County Sheriff's Office said firefighters responded to the home and dismantled the chimney to rescue the burglar. But when they pulled him out, he was dead.

    The coroner’s offices removed the body from the scene and will conduct an autopsy to determine his identity and the exact cause of death, a sheriff's deputy said.

    i'm guessing regardless of the perp's race he was black from the smoke and soot. therefore, his life mattered. any of our california board members available to protest and riot today?

    Here's a picture of the chimney when firefighters tried to get him out. I'd send his next of kin the bill.

    i imagine that once he has the firelace repaired, every time he has guests, someone will ask if he is cooking roast chicken.

    The worst thing that ever happened to me was on Christmas. Oh, God. It was so horrible.

    It was Christmas Eve. I was 9 years old. Me and Mom were decorating the tree, waiting for Dad to come home from work. A couple hours went by. Dad wasn't home. So Mom called the office. No answer. Christmas Day came and went, and still nothing. So the police began a search.

    Four or five days went by. Neither one of us could eat or sleep. Everything was falling apart. It was snowing outside. The house was freezing, so I went to try to light up the fire. That's when I noticed the smell.

    The firemen came and broke through the chimney top. And me and Mom were expecting them to pull out a dead cat or a bird. And instead they pulled out my father. He was dressed in a Santa Claus suit. He'd been climbing down the chimney... his arms loaded with presents. He was gonna surprise us. He slipped and broke his neck. He died instantly.

    And that's how I found out there was no Santa Claus.
