Full Text

Toledo, September 20. - Early this morning when the small sand-sucker MAUD PRESTON was coming up the bay, she caught fire and burned to the water's edge. The origin of the fire is unknown, but it is supposed to have resulted from the spontaneous combustion of coal. None of the crew were injured. The PRESTON was insured for $3,000. The barge FOSTORIA, which the PRESTON had in tow, was uninjured.
