p.3 Buffalo, Nov. 11th - Last evening about 8 o'clock a fire broke out in the hold of the steamer Buckeye State, and before she could be scuttled and the flames extinguished, she was damaged to the amount of 15 to $20,000. She was a new and very splendid boat, and was worth $100,000, owned by Mr. Cobb and commanded by Capt. Phillip Simpson. At the time of the fire she was loading and taking in passengers at her dock for Cleveland. We learn that some $15,000 in goods were lost in the Buckeye.
