CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) Fairfax County's Urban Search and Rescue Team has rescued 15 people in Haiti since their arrival last week in Port-au-Prince.

The most recent rescue came Sunday night. The team found a 21-year-old woman trapped in the rubble of a multistory building.

The team had been working at the collapsed Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince but has completed that work. Now the team is working in newly assigned areas of the city.

Fairfax sent two teams that have been merged in Haiti. They are operating out of a base on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy. The costs are all covered by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
