PHOENIX (AP) - Firefighters in Phoenix have rescued five people off mountains in separate incidents with most involving heat-related issues.

Four of the distress calls came within a 90-minute span Sunday.

Crews helped a 33-year-old man with an ankle injury on Camelback Mountain about 9:15 a.m. He was treated at a hospital for heat-related symptoms.

Firefighters then were called to Pima Canyon Trail on South Mountain after a 43-year-old woman ran out of water and was experiencing vertigo.

At 9:45 a.m., firefighters walked two people who were feeling overheated and distressed down a mountain trail north of Happy Valley Road.

An hour later, they helped a 14-year-old girl on a mountain near Dove Valley Road who suffered heat-related symptoms.

The fifth incident was an injured hiker on the Sunrise Trailhead in north Scottsdale.
