NEW MARKET — Three miners trapped more than 800 feet underground after a fire broke out in a zinc mine this afternoon have been rescued.
They were brought to the surface in a basket, and all are fine, according to officials.
The men weren't in immediate danger but couldn't get out without help, New Market Volunteer Fire Department Capt. Sammy Solomon said.
