Kidder Township Police were notified by the Snow Ridge Village Security that they had a vehicle that had caught on fire. Kidder Police then called for Lake Harmony Fire to extinguish the remains of a car fire that had occurred sometime over night. According to police, the owner stated that he attempted to extinguish the fire using several Coors Light beer bottles, which obviously did not work. For some reason the driver did not report the fire until several hours after the incident. Engine 17 arrived and fully extinguished the fire. Units were on scene for just under an hour.

A massive four day search took place in Lake Harmony from Saturday to Tuesday morning all around Lake Harmony. On Saturday afternoon an 84 year old woman who was vacationing with family at Big Boulder was reported missing. Crews set up with ATV's and started a search of the area near the home. Search dogs were then brought in to try to determine a direction of travel, which lead teams up towards Shannanigan's, where the trail ended. The search was then suspended until Sunday morning. Crew from all over the area resumed searching both land and lakes. A PSP helicopter was used along with side scan sonar to try to locate the victim. Several tips came in during the search, all proved negative. During the search, one searcher became trapped by a large boulder that was on his leg. Rescue crews were dispatched to the side of the mountain behind the firehouse to free the searcher. The search continued until Tuesday afternoon, when it was determined that there were no new leads to follow up on. Thanks to all who helped support the search efforts.
