Though it's hard to put a number on how many lives were possibly saved on many emergency calls last weekend by the Detroit Lakes Fire Department and Becker County Sheriff's Office, there is one they can be certain of.


A 34 year-old horse was stuck in a swamp south of Detroit Lakes Sunday afternoon, and the combined efforts of both departments pulled the exhausted horse out safely.

The horse is doing well as of Friday morning, according to Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon.
