LAIE, Hawaii -

Honolulu firefighters rescued a group of hikers along the Koolau Ridge Trail Sunday morning.

Officials said a group of 6 men, between the ages of 17 and 21, got lost around 6 p.m. Saturday while hiking the Pupukea Summit Trail.

Windy and cloudy conditions made it difficult for HFD to reach the group yesterday, so they were forced to stay the night.

The group was brought down Sunday morning by vehicle.  No injuries were reported.
