FLAMES LICK UP BOAT
Complete Destruction of the Str: F. H. Prince
The steamer F.H. Prince beached off the east shore of Kelley?s Island a week ago today after she had been swept by flames, was totally destroyed and is now a total wreck, the fire having broken out when, it is believed, the high winds of Sunday night fanned smouldering embers into a blaze.
The Prince was seized by federal authorities last Saturday after the Homegardener Sand Co., of this city, had filed a claim for salvage against her owners.
Despite the fact that she was held by the government persons unknown are said to have rushed aboard and to have stripped the boat of about anything of any value when the fire that completed the destruction was discovered Monday.
