Late Spring Delays Opening of Recreational Facilities
Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam

WAUSAU - The late arrival of spring means a late start to trails and sports facilities opening.

In Lincoln County, the Harrison Hills summer ATV trail system will open late.

So will the Underdown recreational trails.

Normally they'd be ready by May first, but conditions are just too wet.

In Marathon County, all city of Wausau and county park sports fields are closed because of melting snow and wet conditions.

People are asked to stay off the fields so they don't damage the turf.

MERRILL - Merrill Fire Department wants to remind you to stay safe this Thanksgiving.

Deep-frying a turkey is a popular cooking style, but it's also the most dangerous way to prepare your bird.
 
You should never leave the fryer unattended because it only takes seconds to boil over.

Turkey fryer explosions can be massive.

Set up the fryer in an open-air space, away from kids and pets.

"Fire can expand at least two times the size every minute. Leaving for two or three minutes? You're looking at a pretty big fire," firefighter and paramedic Phillip Skoug.

For those deer hunters out there, never place your fryer near your canopy.

You should also never leave food cooking in your kitchen untended either.
