ARROWHEAD SPRINGS, Calif. - A hiker who has been missing in the San Bernardino National Forest for five days has been rescued.

San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jodi Miller says 55-year-old Rodney Trumbo of Redlands was found Sunday afternoon after a helicopter crew spotted a fire that he started.

Rescuers hoisted him out of canyon near Arrowhead Springs and took him to a hospital for treatment of dehydration, and pain to the head and shoulders.

Miller said Trumbo was reported missing on Tuesday.
