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.

My sympathies lie with the homeowner.


All the grief they will have to go through. I'm betting insurance won't cover it either.

Likewise. In the end it's the homeowner who will have all the pain, grief, expense, courts and media to contend with - for doing nothing wrong.
