A hiker had a scary incident on Tuesday (6/21) in a Yellowstone County park, according to a social media post from the Billings Fire Department.
At 5:38 pm Tuesday evening, firefighters from the BFD were dispatched to Zimmerman Park to "assist a stranded hiker," but at the time of the post on Twitter, there was no other information about the rescue.
