Rescuers on Wednesday reached three miners trapped in an eastern Tennessee zinc mine after a fire, and were bringing them to the surface, a fire rescue spokesman said.
They should all be out by 5 p.m. ET, said Capt. Sammy Solomon of New Market Fire Rescue.
The miners were trapped by smoke after a rig fire broke out 800 feet underground Wednesday at the Young Mine in New Market, Solomon said. They were among 54 miners in the mine at the time. The others managed to get out, though two were transported to a local hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
