Search and rescue underway for several hikers stranded in Devil’s Bathtub area
Members with the Fort Blackmore Volunteer Fire Department and additional crews are searching for stranded hikers at Devil’s Bathtub.
A Facebook post from the agency on Sunday evening said eight hikers have been rescued, but around 12 to 20 hikers are still stranded as of 3:30 Monday morning on various parts of the trail. Thunderstorms moved through the area earlier on Sunday, causing creeks to rise and stranding the hikers along parts of the trail.
Water rescue crews from Norton have also been called to the area. This is a developing story and we will provide updates as they become available.
