Firefighters rescued two hikers Friday night near the summit of Mauna Loa after they became separated from the trail, Hawaii island fire officials said.

A 50-year-old man from Australia and a 29-year-old woman from Germany called for help around 6:45 p.m. Friday. Officials arrived on scene at 8:05 p.m. and found the hikers about 2 miles from the summit of the volcano.

Both hikers were uninjured and did not need medical treatment.
