Utah Firefighters Rescue Boy From Chimney An 8-year-old West Valley boy discovered the hard way Friday night that it's best to leave sliding up and down chimneys to Santa Claus. West Valley Police Sgt. Robert Hamilton said the boy disappeared Friday afternoon when his teenage siblings were supposed to be watching him, only to be found hours later trapped inside a chimney in the area of 4300 South and 4800 West, about four blocks from his home.
