A Stockton teenager will probably be leaving chimneys to Santa from now on. Firefighters had to haul him from the flue of his own home Thursday.

The 18-year-old got stuck when he apparently tried to sneak into the house after missing his curfew. He almost made it; the rescue team says he was dangling just a few feet above the hearth.

Neither the chagrined teenager, nor his parents had anything to say to the media.
