The Propeller St. PAUL, bound up, caught fire and the Tug WINSLOW worked with their hose for two days putting the fire out. She was finally scuttled at Detour in twelve feet of water and was saved from further destruction. The fire originated in the hold in some lime which was part of her cargo. - Cheboygan Report
