Hikers Rescued From Angeles National Forest

The call for help came in at 9:09, a fire dispatch supervisor told Patch.

Three hikers who became lost in the Angeles National Forest were rescued and airlifted to safety Sunday, authorities said.

The call for a rescue came into Los Angeles County fire at 9:09 p.m., according to dispatch Supervisor Phil Elloa, who told Patch the hikers became stranded on Strawberry Peak.

A sheriff's search and rescue team went into the forest to find the hikers and lead them back to a campground, where they were picked up by a helicopter crew and brought off the mountain, Elloa said.

There was no word on injuries.
