Story By Ryan Michaels

MCNAUGHTON - A van lost control on the icy roads around 11 this morning near McNaughton and rolled over into the roadside ditch.

The van was traveling south toward Rhinelander on Highway 47 when the driver lost control.

It swerved across the highway and wound up rolling over on the other side of the road. No other cars were involved in the wreck.

The Lake Tomahawk Fire Department and Oneida County Sheriffs Department responded to the accident.

They believe the icy road conditions were the likely cause.

All three people in the van amazingly walked away with no injuries.

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.
