MINNETONKA, Minn. - Emergency crews responded to a boat fire on Lake Minnetonka early on Sunday evening.
The fire started on a 42-foot boat in Robinson's Bay in Deephaven. Ten people were on board, all of which got off of the boat safely.
Other boats in the area were able to rescue the passengers.
Witnessed said that you could see smoke billowing over the lake. Photos sent to KARE 11 by viewers show the flames shooting from the boat.
When Sheriff's deputies arrived they towed the boat to shore while trying to put out the fire. They pumped water from the lake to fight the blaze.
