BELTRAMI COUNTY, Minn. (WCCO) – Officials in northern Minnesota are reminding residents of the dangers of going out early on icy lakes.
The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office posted a warning on Facebook, saying that several people have already gone out on Lake Irving.
Though those people reported the ice was 2 inches thick, the sheriff’s office says the ice should at the minimum be 4 inches thick before people go out and walk on it.
“We know people love fishing, but we hate ice water rescues,” the sheriff’s office wrote.
