Two tree trimmers were rescued, the Fresno Fire Department reported, amid distress during a Thursday afternoon job in northeast Fresno.
Fire crews were called to the 1500 block of east Magill Avenue for a report of a possible hemorrhage about 4:30 p.m.
They arrived to find the two workers apparently unable to get down out of a tree. One of the workers received what were described as minor cuts on his arm from a chainsaw.
The injured worker was taken to the local hospital.
