Seventeen miners were trapped 900 feet underground in a salt mine in upstate New York after an elevator broke down late Wednesday night, local officials said.

The miners weren’t in any danger, Tompkins County officials told CBS Elmira, N.Y. affiliate WENY.

A county spokesperson said efforts were underway to rescue the miners from the Cargill-owned Cayuga Salt Mine in Lansing, N.Y.

The Ithaca, N.Y. Fire Department said a crane from Auburn, N.Y. arrived at the scene to help with the rescue
