LAKE TEXOMA (KXII) - Firefighters say a dozen people were on a boat that caught fire on Lake Texoma.

The fire started around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and was put out by 8 p.m.

The boat owner says six adults, six kids and a dog were on board. He’s from Colleyville and visiting the lake for the weekend.

Witnesses say five to six people jumped off the back of the boat when the flames started, and an emergency boat picked them up and took them to a nearby shore.

Preston Fire crews and Pottsboro police are at the scene in boats near Navy Loop on the Preston Peninsula.

No one was hurt. The boat is a total loss.
