Becker County sheriff issues ice warning Tuesday after fish houses start sinking

Deteriorating ice conditions on Little Detroit Lake caused the Becker County Sheriff's Department to issue an ice warning on Tuesday.

Sheriff Tim Gordon said two fish houses were sinking and in danger of falling through the ice Tuesday morning. He urged people not to drive cars or trucks on the lake and to be careful traveling on foot or ATV.

Unseasonably high temperatures over the Christmas weekend contributed to unstable ice conditions.
