Fargo anglers OK after falling through ice

PELICAN RAPIDS, Minn. – Two Fargo men fell through the ice on Grove Lake northwest of here Friday night.

Colton Kellen and Jacob Stevens, both 20, called 911 after they got out of the water and made it to shore, but they didn’t know where they were. The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Department received the call around 8:50 p.m.

Kellen and Stevens were located on Grove Lake Road, cold but otherwise uninjured.
