Cedar Lake fish house breaks through ice 10 Feb 12

A fish house broke through the ice on Cedar Lake this afternoon, partially submerging in the frigid waters and prompting a response from emergency crews who were initially unsure if anyone was in the house when it sank.

Scott County Deputy Dennis Tietz reported the incident to KCHK about 1:00 this afternoon. Four emergency responders walked across the ice to the house, which was submerged in water up to its roof, but did not find anyone inside. They do not believe anyone was hurt in the incident and were attempting to contact the owner of the fish house to inform him of the issue.
