Full Text

The tug CARRINGTON, while towing a raft of logs to Baraga, caught fire about midway between L'Anse and that port, about nine o'clock Sunday Morning, and, notwithstanding the efforts of the crew, was burned to the water's edge. She had an iron hull and will therefore not prove a total loss. The crew was rescued by the steam yacht EVA WADSWORTH. The tug was owned by Nester & Co.
