Busy Times For APO Fire Department

Okoboji, IA (KICD)–It has been a busy few days for the Arnolds Park/Okoboji Fire Department, but luckily nobody was injured.
Fire Chief Chris Yungbluth tells KICD News that they were called to a fire alarm at the Coronado Building at Bridges Bay on Thursday.

Yungbluth says they will basically have to gut out the damaged units and rebuild at an estimated cost of $750,000.
Yungbluth says they were called out to a number of reports of people and vehicles falling in the ice on Friday night and Saturday.

Lakes Regional Healthcare Paramedics checked on the 14 people who fell in the water.  All of the individuals warmed up and signed refusals to transport them to a hospital.
Yungbluth reminds folks that there is no such thing as safe ice.

Others assisting include the South Central Dive Team from Trimont, Minnesota and fire crews from Milford and Lake Park.
