Well that's a different way to fight a boat fire.

A young man in Minnesota was in another boat with his family when he saw the fire last Saturday at Cross Lake. He decided to get on a flyboard to knock out the flames, using the water propelled from the flyboard.  

It took him about two minutes to put out the blaze.

The occupants of the boat were able to escape. No injuries were reported, according to KARE 11 in Minneapolis.
