The boat owner took his boat out for a quick trip on the lake on Saturday evening. He noticed some smoke coming from the engine compartment and started to address it with his required onboard fire extinguisher. Others out and about stopped to assist but the fire quickly got the better of the boat. The boat operator was off and safe before the fire got out of hand. Both Conroe and North Montgomery County Fire Departments made the scene along with Pct 1 Lake Patrol. Thankfully no one was injured. Only property damage. Precinct 1 Constables would like to thank everyone who helped.
