ELKO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Elko County Sheriff’s Office had to intervene after a man was trapped in his home due to the deep snow.

On Thursday, the department, along with a member of the Search and Rescue team, was called out to the Montello area of the city for the rescue.

The man had a physical disability, and needed to be moved to stay with a friend as he was running low on propane he was using to heat his home as well as for supplies.

The Sheriff’s Office was able to reach the home using a UTV and took him to a neighbor’s house.
