Two Grand Junction residents are safe after being rescued late Sunday in Arizona.

The two, who are both 53, were with a group camping in the White Pocket area on the Paria Plateau in Arizona when they left to take photographs.

After 24 hours they still hadn't returned, prompting the other members of their group to call authorities.

According to police, members of a private outdoor outfitting business spotted a signal fire the two started and reported it. The two, a male and female, were in a really remote area and had to be rescued by helicopter.

The two were uninjured.
