MARINETTE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities in eastern Wisconsin rescued 10 people -- including three children -- from four small fishing boats that became stranded in the rising waters of the Menominee River.
Rescuers were called to the scene around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
The boats got caught in rapidly-rising water and swift currents. Lt. Steve Campbell of the Marinette Fire Department says ice upriver broke apart and came downriver.
No one was injured in the incident, in which authorities also rescued two dogs.
Campbell says it's not safe to go out on the water until all the ice breaks up.
