PHOENIX (AP) - Phoenix officials say they have rescued two teenage girls who went hiking at night without flashlights or enough water.

Phoenix Fire Department says the girls went hiking around 8 p.m. Monday and got lost about three-quarters of the way up Gila Trail at Estrella Mountain Park. Officials say one of the girls became dehydrated and was unable to continue down the trail, and the other girl was able to walk ahead and call for help.

They were rescued around 2 a.m. Sunday in Goodyear.

Firefighters hiked to the dehydrated girl and gave her IV fluids. She was taken to the hospital for treatment.

The other teen did not need medical attention.
