LAKE IDA, MINN. (KFGO-AM) -- Despite the cold weather, you still have to be careful venturing out on the ice.
Two fishermen found out just how unsafe ice can be. They were out on Lake Ida in Douglas County, Minnesota Wednesday when both their fish house and SUV plunged through the ice. Luckily, both men inside the truck got out okay.
The DNR recommends four inches of ice for fishing, five inches for a snowmobile or ATV and 12 to 15 inches for a medium truck.
