A boat caught fire on the lake Monday morning. The Highway Patrol reports the incident occurred around the 12.5 mile marker near Regatta Bay. The driver, 44 year old Chad Stockman of Lohman, was driving the 37 foot Power Quest when he smelled smoke. He then looked into the engine compartment and saw flames coming from the rubber exhaust boot. Stockman and his occupants were able to evacuate the boat safely, but crews were unable to contain the flames. The boat consequently sank.
