NORTHWOODS - Firefighters in Vilas County put out Monday's house fire on Highway 17 without anyone getting hurt. Many have put out more fires than they can count. But all of them experienced a first Monday. The Eagle River Area fire department used a mutual aid system that is just beginning to grow in Vilas County.
"It allows you to focus on the incident as opposed to the resources that you have," said Eagle River Area Fire Chief Michael Anderson.
NORTHWOODS - You might notice young drivers tend to be more distracted than others. A new study from AAA shows that 88 percent of young millennials are risky drivers. Texting while driving, speeding, and red-light running all fall into that category.

"I know I've gotten pulled over more times because I've been checking my phone and I wasn't monitoring my speed very well," said Stapleton.

MADISON - The head of the state prison system is assuring lawmakers that Wisconsin's troubled youth prison is safe.
