Burlington firefighters say waterfront ice is not safe

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Burlington firefighters say the ice at the waterfront is not safe for any activities.

They say the Burlington waterfront has pack ice right now which forms when large pieces of floating ice come together into a nearly continuous mass. That's unsafe for walking, skating or fishing.

Firefighters say if you see someone go through the ice and you can't reach them from the shore, throw them something. If that doesn't work, call for help.
