Monday, May 11 a fire was reported on West Fourth St. in Rush City. The vacant building was a loss, according to a county sheriff’s press release. Firefighters with Rush City, North Branch and Pine City were on scene, starting about 3 p.m. The state fire marshal has an investigator working to determine a cause.
The sheriff’s patrol and local police aided in a high speed pursuit Friday, May 8 on I-35. A 17-year-old male had allegedly fled authorities out of White Bear Lake, northbound in a black Camry, about 4 a.m. The pursuit was picked up by local law enforcement when he headed into Chisago County still on the freeway. Stop sticks were laid near North Branch and the passenger car was halted when the tires ran over the sticks and were punctured.
The suspect was being held in the Regional Juvenile Facility.
May 6 an illegal burn activity was ticketed in Chisago Lake Township on 335th St. about 8:25 p.m. Dry spring conditions have made most burning unwise. A small (3-feet in diameter) monitored recreational fire is about all that’s allowed at this time.
The sheriff contract patrol ticketed a person fishing the St Croix River in Taylors Falls for possessing a bass out of season. Also a person fishing on Rush Lake at Frandsen County Park was ticketed by the county for possessing over limit in crappies.
There was a citation issued on Rush Lake for an unregistered boat.
