Fire crews say they were able to successfully rescue a man from a chimney in Midtown Atlanta on Saturday.

Atlanta Fire Rescue tweeted photos from the scene that show a ladder truck in operation near South City Kitchen and firefighters crawling in tight spaces.

It's not clear if the incident happened at the restaurant or in a location adjacent to it. However, what is clear, according to firefighters, is that a man somehow found himself stuck about 10 to 15 feet down a very narrow chimney.

The rescue was referred to as a special operation incident and was taken on by the city's Squad 4 Heavy Rescue Team.

Eventually, they managed to get the man out of the chimney and a photo shows them treating him on a backboard somewhere nearby.

Atlanta Fire Rescue hasn't released any details about why he was in the chimney. 11Alive has also reached out to the restaurant group that owns the nearby restaurant for further details.
