Roanoke County Fire and Rescue said their crews were called to the Dragon's Tooth Trail in Roanoke County after hikers got lost Wednesday night.

They said it took career and volunteer rescue personnel nearly three hours to find the five adult hikers and escort them down the trail to the parking area around 8 p.m.

The hikers were not injured.
