It was a busy weekend for the Huntsville/Lake of Bays Fire Department.
Firefighters with the department were called out around 3:30 Sunday afternoon for a snowmobile that had gone through the ice near Point Ideal Rd. on Lake of Bays.
Crews from Lake of Bays Station 20 & 30 arrived to find the person standing on the machine which had broken through the ice and was sitting on a sandbar about 50 feet from shore. An extra crew was brought in from Huntsville to assist and firefighters were able to bring the man safely to shore. The man was checked by Muskoka Paramedic Services but not injured in the incident.
Later on around 6pm, Lake of Bays firefighters were once again called to assist paramedics with a female that had fallen and broke her arm on a trail about a kilometre off Wolf Bay Rd. The ATV was used to transport the patient from the trail to an awaiting ambulance.
Firefighters would like to remind the public that ice conditions are quickly deteriorating and warn people to stay off the ice.
