The steam barge ROSE, lumber laden, was partially burned Tuesday night at Tonawanda. The fire started in the engine room about 12 o'clock. The fire was extinguished by scuttling the boat. The damage is thought not to exceed $1,000. The hull and cargo were insured. The tug CROWELL and a steam pump were sent down this evening to raise the burnt craft.
