Crow Wing River Floods

(AP) The spring run-off is creating some trouble in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

A Pillager woman had to be rescued from her home Tuesday night as rising waters from the Crow Wing River threatened her home. Firefighters used a boat to rescue Mary Rudolph and her three dogs.

The river rose eight inches during the half hour the firefighters were at the Rudolph home.

The National Weather Service says more troubles are possible as ice makes its way from Lake Placid through the area, and dams-up water behind the ice jams.
