There was a dramatic scene on Lake Minnetonka Thursday evening when a boat was destroyed by a fire on the water.

The scene was captured by Emily Burton, who shared video of the fire in Forest Lake Bay, Orono.

The Hennepin County Water Patrol and a fire boat arrived with the blaze established, and extinguished it a short time later.

There's no word yet on injuries, but it's believed the occupants on the boat made it off and to shore.
