The sheriff in Rusk County is warning that the ice is still too thin in some places.
The sheriff’s office yesterday said someone fell through the ice while fishing on Fireside Lake yesterday morning. People who live on the lake pulled the man out of the water before deputies were able to get there. He was taken to the hospital in Rice Lake as a precaution. The sheriff’s office says the warm winter has left the ice on many local lakes too thin. Deputies say it’s best to wait till colder weather can settle-in.
