The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Syracuse (Propeller), fire, 1 Jun 1845

Full Text

The propeller SYRACUSE, which it will be recollected took fire on her passage down, about 50 miles this side of Milwaukee, arrived at the foot of Buell Ave. last evening. We are informed by a passenger who was aboard her at the time of the accident that the fire commenced under the boiler deck, which was burnt off and destroyed. There was a perfect calm, which had prevailed for 10 hours, otherwise the vessel would have been destroyed. The fire was extinguished without any great material damage by means of buckets, which were fortunately on board. - Rochester American.
