Full Text

      Shortly after midnight a fire was discovered in the small tug D.P. DEY, lying in the Main and Hamburg Canal near the Michigan St. bridge, and the alarm was accordingly sounded from box 14. The department were soon on hand, but he tug was pretty thoroughly consumed before the flames could be extinguished. The fire is supposed to have originated in the engine room. The DEY was owned by Capt. Dan Cheney, and his loss is covered by insurance.
