A man was rescued after getting stuck 30 feet down a chimney at a Los Angeles apartment building.

Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott says firefighters pulled the man out of the bottom of the furnace chimney at the four-story building in Koreatown before dawn Friday.

Scott says the man was taken to a hospital in fair condition, and police will investigate what led to the incident.
