MARKED TREE, Ark. (AP) - Emergency crews say two men trapped inside a grain bin in northeastern Arkansas have been rescued.

Jeff Jones with the West Memphis Fire Department told KAIT (https://bit.ly/2attIMU ) Tuesday afternoon that the men were taken to a hospital and appeared to be doing well after being rescued from the bin at Ritter Grain Services in Marked Tree.

Jones said it appears the two men fell from the top of the grain bin and Brent Cox with the Green County Rescue Squad says the grain in the bin then shifted and the men were trapped against a door.

Two firefighters were also treated after suffering symptoms of heat exhaustion at the scene.

Marked Tree is about 140 miles northeast of Little Rock.
