PHOENIX — Crews rescued a hiker off of Camelback Mountain who had gotten stuck in the wee hours of Wednesday morning.

Firefighters climbed to an area above the hiker and, using ropes, lowered a crew member down. The woman was placed into a harness and lowered to safety.
No injuries were reported.
The name of the hiker was not made available.
