Residents reported hearing the sound of a woman crying in the area at about 5:45am. Deputies found Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa trapped inside the chimney.
Ventura County Fire Department and Urban Search and Rescue members had to dismantle the chimney in order to get Nunez-Figueroa out. She was lubricated with dish soap prior to being hoisted out, Ventura County Fire Capt. Mike Lindbery said via Twitter.
Nunez-Figueroa was conscious upon being extricated and was transported to a hospital for an evaluation, Lindbery said.
The male resident of the home was not home during the incident. He said he had met Nunez-Figueroa online and went on a few dates with her, but had recently ended the relationship.
This is the second time Nunez-Figueroa was found on his roof. Two weeks ago, he spotted her and called police, but she disappeared.
"I'm going to be a little more cautious of who I invite into my house now," said Lawrence, who did not want to reveal his last name.
Nunez-Figueroa was later arrested for illegal entry and providing false information to a peace officer.
