Eight hikers rescued from above Brand Park in Glendale

Eight hikers were rescued early Tuesday from a hillside above Brand Park after they were unable to climb down a mountain trail, officials said.

The hikers were not injured during the incident, which occurred about 11:27 p.m. Monday at the park, Glendale fire officials said.

A helicopter crew found the group on a trail near the 7 Pines area and kept a spotlight on them until a rescue crew reached them, officials said.

The group told authorities they were working out on the trails, officials said.

Fire crews escorted the group down the trail at about 12:45 a.m.
