The boats got caught in rapidly-rising water and swift currents. Lt. Steve Campbell of the Marinette Fire Department says ice upriver broke apart and came downriver.

No one was injured in the incident, in which authorities also rescued two dogs.

Campbell says it's not safe to go out on the water until all the ice breaks up.
