Firefighters rushing to the scene of a rural Nevis fire late Monday night were startled to see a car in East Crooked Lake off County Road 2.


They called the Hubbard County Sheriff. They had too much on their hands already.

Their 11:20 p.m. call led to the arrest later of Julia Christen Kujawa, 20, of Park Rapids, on a drunken driving charge.

The vehicle was unoccupied and pulled out of the lake.

The State Patrol investigated.
