Valley Regional Fire Authority crews rescued three adults who were stranded on a small island on the Green River in Auburn early Tuesday morning.
At 6:22 a.m. VRFA crews responded to a report of three people in trouble on the river. One of the stranded adults called 911 and reported that they had followed a trail from the Fenster Park area and ended up on a small island with water covering their feet. They reported that the water around them was rising, and they were unable to walk out on their own.
Once the VRFA water rescue team located the three victims, they were loaded onto a boat and brought safely to shore.
The Puget Sound Fire Authority and Renton Regional Fire Authority helped VRFA crews on the call.
There were no reported injuries to the three adults or firefighters.
The VRFA reminds the public to use extreme caution around area rivers and other waterways during the heavy rain season as water levels can rise quickly and flooding can occur.
