WEST ALLIS - A boy saved his younger brother, from a fire in southern Wisconsin.

Preventing Lyme Disease in the NorthwoodsSubmitted: 09/14/2014

MINOCQUA - Lyme Disease can be dangerous if you don't treat it. The faster you know you have it, the better chance you have at getting rid of it. The only way to do that is to know what symptoms to look out for.

That's why Jillayne and Jeff Waite of Arbor Vitae talked to a group of people at the Church of the Pines in Minocqua Sunday. Their daughter was diagnosed with Lyme Disease 11 years ago. They then were bitten by a infected tick a couple years after she was diagnosed, but they were able to catch it in time.

"I've had it twice, but I caught it early. Thanks to my daughter, with what we've learn after going through all of this with my daughter, we know the symptoms to look for and what action to take if we see those symptoms," said Lyme Disease Awareness Network Co-Founder Jeff Waite.
