VILAS COUNTY - Building a successful business can be challenging especially if you don't have experience.
That's why some owners turn to business incubators. They offer space for start-up companies to develop and share resources.

A new business incubator in Vilas County will open soon. The 13,000 square foot building was originally a 7 UP distribution center.

"People have ideas and we can be the vehicle for them to develop those ideas into a functional or profitable business," says Bob Egan, Executive Director Vilas County Economic Development Corporation.

This incubator focuses on helping start up manufacturing companies. But it's not just a place to host companies. It also offers resources including mentors.

"The key element to success is having a really really proactive business plan moving forward, and that requires legal advice marketing advice, insurance advice, all kinds of that," says Barry McLeane, Project Manager for Eagle River and Manitowish Waters Incubators.

"That's what we do we've got a extensive list of advisors that help with all of those processes," says McLeane.

The new business incubator will open early next year.

BLAINE, MINNESOTA - Firefighters from Upper Michigan put themselves at risk to battle fires in Utah.

On the way home, two were killed when the bus they were riding in crashed over the weekend in Minnesota.

Now the firefighter who was driving the bus is facing charges.

According to a criminal complaint, 28-year-old Michael Johnson told authorities he'd slept just 45 minutes the previous 28 hours as he drove a bus with 8 other wildland firefighters returning from a fire in Utah to their home base near Baraga in Michigan's Upper Penninsula.

Officers say Johnson was combative and showed signs of impairment at the crash scene, and later admitted to using marijuana the morning of the crash - and cocaine two days earlier.
