The two Wisconsin anglers rescued from ice floes Jan. 22 on Saxon Harbor of Lake Superior were billed nearly $2,000 total for their rescue by the Ashland Fire Department.
Skip Wick, 81, of Hurley and Mike Popko, 61, of Saxon said this week that they each were billed $951.36 for their rescue by a wind-sled craft called an Ice Angel.
"I just paid it this last Monday," Wick said.
