A. J. Mowry (Propeller), U1028, fire, 14 Sep 1867

Full Text

We learn from Capt. Lathrop, of the stm. REINDEER, which arrived here yesterday noon, on her regular trip, that the prop. A.P. MOWRY took fire on Thursday night off Lexington, Lake Huron, and narrowly escaped being a total loss, with all hands. Her upper works were consumed, with a portion of her bulwarks, when fortunately the flames were suppressed and the boat saved from going to the bottom. The tug G.H. PARKER went to the relief of the burning steamer and towed her to Port Huron, where she now lies.
