THOUSAND OAKS (KTLA) -

A woman, accused of illegally entering a home, had to be rescued by firefighters with jackhammers after becoming stuck in the chimney.

The woman is accused of entering the home of a Thousand Oaks man she went on multiple dates with.

Deputies responded to a home at 5:45 a.m. after a caller reported the woman had been stuck in the chimney, about 8 feet from the top, for two hours, said Capt. Renee Ferguson of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

The county fire department’s urban search and rescue team was called to the scene. Photos posted on Twitter by the department showed firefighters on the roof of the house as they worked to reach the woman, who was conscious during the rescue.

The flue was lubricated with dish soap before she was lifted out of the chimney, placed in a stokes basket and hoisted from the roof by a ladder truck, according to VCFD Captain Mike Lindbery.

The woman, whose “intent was unclear,” was known by the homeowner, the Sheriff’s Department said.

She was extricated by 8:22 a.m. and transported to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center for evaluation, according to the Fire Department. Her condition was not immediately known.

She was later identified as Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, a 30-year-old Thousand Oaks resident, and arrested for allegedly illegally entering a residence and providing false information to a peace officer, the VCSD stated in a news release.

The home’s resident, who did not wish to be identified, said he had met Nunez-Figueroa online and they had gone on about six dates.

He cautioned other people about allowing acquaintances into their homes.

“Before you have somebody come in your house really check them out … really give it some time before you let somebody in, because they might want to stay,” he told KTLA.
