A pontoon boat caught fire on Conesus Lake Sunday afternoon. Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies tell us they were called to the scene around 2:15 p.m. but by the time they arrived to the scene the boat was full engulfed.
Luckily, the 60-year-old owner of the boat and his two passengers were able to safely leave the boat and were helped by several other boats. However the boat is a total loss, and authorities aren't sure of the cause at this point.
Smoke from the fire was visible for miles, as you can tell by the photo to the left.
