NAPLES, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- While it has been cool, we have still gotten reports of people and vehicles falling through the ice on Maine's lakes and ponds this weekend.

A truck went through the ice on Long Lake in Naples today.

No one was hurt.

We also heard a report of a woman falling through the ice in Southwest Harbor today.

Wardens say many factors affect ice thickness - not just temperatures.

The Maine Warden Service suggests a four inch thick minimum for walking or ice fishing... Five inches for snowmobile or ATVs... 8 to 12 inches for cars and small pick-ups and at least 12 inches for a medium sized truck.
