Two ways to do it - easily. Take your pick:
1) Wait about 3 days, then put on a pair of leather work gloves, open it up and take him outside. He will be too weak (from thirst) to resist. Wait another day (or two) and fish him out dead.
2) Open up all the doors and windows in that room, then open the stove and leave him alone. He'll leave within a few minutes or so. Watch the doors and windows (from the outside) for when he exits.
3) Put a chimney cap on the chimney.
