Maine wardens respond to 8 ice-related incidents

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — The Maine Warden Service is reminding people to use extreme caution on frozen waterways after responding to eight incidents of people or vehicles going through ice over the weekend.

The warden service says everyone survived.

The incidents included a truck that went through the ice on Long Lake in Naples to snowmobiles and ATVs becoming submerged in Moosehead, Green, Schoodic, Sebaticook and Big Wood lakes. Some of the vehicles were pulled out and others remain submerged.

Early Monday morning, a truck was reported through the ice on Long Pond on Mount Desert Island. The warden service says the driver was working with the Park Service to have the vehicle removed from the public water supply.
