No one was hurt in a boat fire on Lake Minnetonka on Sunday, authorities reported. But the scene of the burning 45-foot cruiser drew a lot of attention from other boaters and residents as black smoke billowed high into the sky.
There had been 10 people aboard when fire start at about 4:30 p.m., WCCO reported. Officials have not yet said what they suspect sparked the floating blaze in Robinson's Bay in Deephaven on the northeast side of the lake.
Details of how the boat passengers were rescued were not immediately available, although the Associated Press reports other boaters helped rescue the passengers. One amateur video appears to show a number of boats nearby the burning vessel.
Officials put the fire out in minutes, FOX reported.
