Firefighters were able to get a woman safely down Piestewa Peak Saturday night. 

Rescuers responded around 8 p.m. after a 39-year-old reported feeling too fatigued to continue down the mountain.

Crews found her about halfway up the trail and were able to rehydrate her. After a few minutes, she was able to walk down with assistance from firefighters, according to the Phoenix Fire Department.
