Beltrami County Officials Warn Of Thin Ice On Lake Irving

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 two inches thick, the sheriff’s office says the ice should at least be four 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.
