NORTH ATTLEBORO — Firefighters went nearly a mile into woods off Oakridge Avenue on Sunday morning to rescue a person who was injured.

After getting a 911 call, firefighters went to the scene, located and stabilized the victim, then tried to extricate the victim in a basket, Fire Chief Chris Coleman said.

However, due to the location deep in woods, an off-road vehicle was requested from the Plainville Fire Department.

“A team effort made for a successful extrication,” Coleman said.
