By Star-Advertiser Staff

POSTED:



Big Island firefighters rescued two California tourists last night after they got lost while hiking in Kahauale'a Natural Area Reserve in Volcano on the Big Island.

Hawaii County firefighters  said a woman, 31, and man, 27, lost their way in a hapu'u fern forest while trying to hike out of the  trail that leads to Pu'u O'o Vent.

After calling 911 about 7:50 p.m., firefighters used GPS in their phone to locate the hikers about a mile east of the main trail. Rescuers had to clear a new path in order to reach the lost party.

Neither hiker was injured.
