Patrick Henry (Propeller), burnt, 25 Jul 1887

Full Text

Cleveland.---The tug PATRICK HENRY was damaged to the extent of about $250 by fire a little after midnight Tuesday night. She was lying at the dock below the lake Shore bridge, and there was no thought of fire in the boat until it broke out through the doors and windows of the pilot house. The fire originated in the boat's hold, forward, and the damage is principally below. As there is no hatch forward in this boat, the firemen found trouble in getting at the fire. The PATRICK HENRY is owned by Patrick Smith. She is worth about $8,000. It is probable that none of the fire insurance Companies had a risk on her.
