DEVILS LAKE -- A father and daughter are thanking some life-saving neighbors after their boat caught fire in Devil's Lake Saturday evening.

The video above is one David Gerszewski took of his burning pontoon after being rescued by fellow boaters, nearly 30 of them.

Gerszewski tells us his daughter, dog and himself were forced to jump overboard when flames quickly spread towards the front of the boat.

He tells us no officials responded and they were forced to watch their pontoon burn down to the frame.
