4 lost hikers and a dog rescued on Mount Lemmon

The Southern Arizona Rescue Association was able to assist four hikers and a dog who diverged from a hiking trail. 

Four hikers and a dog were rescued after verging off a hiking trail Thursday, the Southern Arizona Rescue Association said in a Facebook post.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department was called to help locate the hikers and dog. The sheriff's department requested the association for further assistance, the post says. 

The hikers and the dog were found in steep terrain off the hiking trail near Green Mountain on Mount Lemmon, a SARA spokeswoman said. They were able to re-hydrate and hike back to the trail. It appears they are doing OK.
