CROSS LAKE, Minn. -- The response to a boat fire on a northern Minnesota lake became a James Bond-like scene Saturday evening.
A man propelled above the water on his flyboard and extinguished the flames on Cross Lake. Paul Gavic, who owns Sky High Flyboard, says he and his sons were at their cabin when they noticed a boat on fire across the lake. His boys went to assist and it took one of them about two minutes to put out the fire using the water propelled from his flyboard.
The occupants of the boat managed to escape to a nearby pontoon and no injuries were reported.
Gavic says the Cross Lake Fire Department helped with the cleanup.
Flyboards are skateboard-like contraptions that use water pumped through a jet ski to elevate into the air.
