Lorain, July 17 - A bad fire was discovered on the stmr. VULCAN while she was in port about midnight last night. It started in the crew's quarters just aft of the engine room, and spread to the engine room and the cabin above. The city fire department was aided by the streams from the CASCADE and MARS, and the fire was put out after much damage had been done.
