Crews rescue 10 people from fishing boats on Menominee River

MARINETTE, WI (WTAQ) - Ten people were rescued in northeast Wisconsin Sunday night, after four small fishing boats got stranded in the rising Menominee River at Marinette.

Three children and two dogs were among those pulled in. None were hurt.

Rescuers were called about 6:30 p.m.

Marinette fire lieutenant Steve Campbell said the boats got caught in swift currents and rapidly rising waters, caused when ice broke apart up the river and came downward.

Campbell says it's not safe to go on the river until all the ice is broken up.
