It's pretty sad when a boat is on fire because the one thing you need to put it out is all around it. In most cases there's not enough time to get the amount of water needed on the fire to put it out. However, there was a genius close by to put out this boat fire.

The drama unfolded on a New Zealand lake and was caught on tape. You've gotta check out the video to see how this fire was extinguished.

With spring coming up in a few months, more and more boaters will be on East Texas lakes, so in case you happen to see a boat billowing black smoke on an East Texas lake, you might think about this method when trying to douse those flames.
