Tucson Fire Department rescues man from chimney

If your name isn't Santa Claus, stay out of chimneys. 

That's the lesson one Tucson man learned over the weekend after getting stuck in his chimney for four hours. 

According to a post on the Tucson Fire Department's Facebook page, the 26-year-old man was rescued Sunday morning after firefighters lowered a rope into the chimney to pull the man out. The man got far enough that his feet were touching the floor of his house, however, he ultimately got stuck because of the decreased diameter near the fire place. The man was not injured. 

After he was pulled out, the man told firefighters he locked his keys in his house and was just trying to get back inside. A neighbor heard him screaming for help and called the fire department.
