19 Rescued from Isolated Cabin
The Menominee County Sheriff’s Department says a total of 19 persons were rescued Monday morning after being stranded in an isolated family cabin on North Gaber Road 6 miles off M69 in Spalding Township. 10 children and 9 adults ranging in age from 1 to 64 were in the cabin. The Menominee County Road Commission and Harris Fire plowed most of the road until their two trucks became stuck in the 2 plus feet of snow cover. Then first responders from Meyer, Mellen, and Cedarville Township Fire Departments used Polaris Ranger tracked vehicles to reach the cabin and rescue the occupants.
