Several agencies were called around 2:30 p.m. Friday. Officials say the teens were on an inflatable raft and were out on the lake about a half-mile off shore but were unable to swim back.

The women, ages 18 and 19, were back on shore about a half-hour later.

KBJR-TV reports no one was hurt. The Duluth Fire and Police Department along with the St. Louis County Rescue Squad were called in to assist.
