UPDATE: Crews hiked in, reached the woman, and got her to the hospital to be treated for her ankle injury about 3:30 a.m., the union said.

INITIAL POST: Search and rescue crews were responding Monday night to a report that a woman was injured while hiking in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

The East Pierce firefighters union, IAFF Local 3520, reported via Facebook about 10 p.m. that the woman, in her 20s, was reportedly hurt in the forest just outside Mount Rainier National Park, on the trail to Summit Lake.

The person who called for help left the woman to get cell reception, to contact emergency crews.

The woman was not believed to have life-threatening injuries, the union said.
