So we were leaving the little beach where we partied all of yesterday, when we heard on the radio that a boat was on fire and between 8 and 10 people were in the water!! A few minutes later, we heard that everyone was out of the water and accounted for!! (Thank god!)

We saw the fire boat pull right up to the boat & start puttin out the flames.. I'm glad everyone was safe!! Not sure how it started, but the news got some video of it!!

Here's some pictures of the Jacksonville Fire Dept's new boat that put out the fire... Pretty impressive!!

Its top speed is near 50!! We were cruising about 35-40 yesterday & saw him coming up on us!

I bet it was either a jet ski or a bass boat that started the fire!

Is that boat rated for 10 people?

I saw a pontoon this weekend that had an easy 20 people on board. Front of the pontoon was completely submerged.

Thats what I was thinking. A 20ft boat for 10 people is crammed in there. I had 10 on my boat once and thought we were going to sink every time i turned to pick up a rider. I made 2 people get out and ride inthe tube all day. lol
