No Assistance Needed After Barrie Fire Gets Ice Rescue Call

While No One Was In Peril, Firefighters Remind You That No Ice Is Safe Ice

Barrie Fire was called to Little Lake prepared for an ice rescue, but discovered something else altogether.

Fire crews arrived at the northern Barrie lake just before 4:00 this afternoon, after a caller reported seeing a parachute drifting over the lake.

Turns out, nobody needed help; someone was there parasailing.

Barrie Fire Prevention Officer Samantha Hoffman tells us while firefighters were on scene, it was noted there were a few ice fishing huts on the water. While it is very early in the season for this, Hoffman reminds us “no ice is safe ice.
