IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A group of snowmobilers has been rescued after becoming stranded and running low on fuel in Fremont County's backcountry.

KIFI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2inFvuU ) that Fremont County Search and Rescue was called into the area around 2 a.m. Thursday.

The six people in the group told the first two responders who reached them that they had a fire burning and were OK to spend the night.

A team started out at daybreak and reached the group before noon.

Everyone was tired but OK when they returned to base camp that afternoon.
