SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Firefighters and sheriff's personnel rescued members of a Lake Arrowhead Boy Scout troop Saturday when they ran into trouble with the hot weather and a difficult hiking trail.

An 11-year-old boy who suffered heat exhaustion was taken to a hospital for treatment. No other members of the group were injured.

San Bernardino City fire spokesman Steve Tracy said the incident serves as a warning for people wanting to venture into the wilderness.
