FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Two adults and three children have been rescued after falling into the Kings River in Fresno County.

Fresno County Fire/CAL FIRE responded to a call of people stuck in a tree on an island around 12 p.m. Thursday between Goodfellow and E Annadale avenues.

Officials believe they got into the river at Annadale Avenue with their raft but, at some point, lost it.

Investigators do not know how long they were in the water.

When CAL FIRE arrived, they were able to get a drone into the air to locate everyone in the river.

No one was injured.
