LACEY, Wash. (AP) -- A 6-year-old climbed about 40 feet up a neighbor's cherry tree in Lacey, but he got stuck and couldn't climb down.

A homeowner heard him calling for help Sunday evening. Firefighters arrived and reached him with a ladder extended from a truck.

KOMO-TV reports the boy promised firefighters he wouldn't climb the tree again.
