is there any space to slide the wheel forward? if so, slide forward to get some slack, pull the chain off the rear cog and let it fall on to the axle, and you should now have enough clearance to pull the wheel far back enough to get out of the fork end. once it clears the end, swing the wheel up or down to get some distance from the frame and take the chain off the axle, let it hang on the chainstay or the little chain hanger braze on that's on some bikes
