Full Text

Tonawanda, Dec. 15. - Through the efforts of the crews on the tugs CONSTITUTION, WHITE HAVEN and PETREL, the fire on the steamer CORMORANT, which caught while going from Tonawanda to Buffalo yesterday morning, was extinguished after the cabin, boiler room and a part of the upper deck had been devastated, entailing a loss of nearly $5,000. The CORMORANT was released from the Grand Island shore, where it was beached when the fire broke out, and towed to Buffalo to be dry-docked for a new wheel. After receiving a new wheel the steamer will be brought to Tonawanda for extensive repairs.
