One of the last remaining original wood cabins on Hopkins Lake is now heavily damaged due to a fire that broke out last night. The occupants were outside by the Lake when they noticed smoke coming from inside their cabin. Pere Marquette and Riverton firefighters responded to the call and say there was heavy smoke and flames, but thankfully no one was inside the cabin and no one was harmed. 


Two Convicted for 20 Year-Ago Murder

The Ludington Daily News reports that two Northern Michigan men have been convicted for the first-degree murder of a man that died 20 years ago. A jury in Manistee County convicted Pete Peterson and Robert Knauss for the crime. Both now face mandatory life sentences without parole. 41 year old Vincent Adamczak hadn't been seen since 1995 but police found his alleged remains more recently in 2011 at one of the perpetrators homes in Norman Township.
