The Southampton Fire Department was called to Lexus of Southampton on Friday morning when an elevator stopped working properly and a woman was trapped inside.

After firefighters arrived at the County Road 39A dealership after the 7:48 a.m. call, they found a woman who is part of the cleaning crew couldn't get out, Second Assistant Chief Chris Brenner said. The electric at the car dealership was operating at half-power, he said.

Crews were able to manually lower the elevator and free her within about 10 minutes of their arrival.

No injuries were reported.
