Full Text

The tug BRADY of the Howard Towing Association was burned on Lake St, Clair at 2 o'clock this morning. The crew were saved.

At 3 o'clock yesterday morning the tug GEORGE N. BRADY, which with the SUMNER, was engaged in pulling a raft across lake St. Clair, was found to be on fire around the smoke-stack and the flames were spreading beyond control. As soon as it became evident that the boat would be destroyed, the crew were taken off by the SUMNER. The burning tug was cut loose from the raft and drifted, a mass of flames, before the light northeast breeze towards the American shore where she sank a short time afterward and the wreck now lies about 3 miles above Grosse Pointe.

      Tug BRADY burned on Lake St. Clair -

The headline was all that was available on the above. The text was missing.

      It is said the wreck of the burned tug BRADY in Lake St. Clair is a dangerous obstruction. But little of it shows above the water, and vessels will have to keep a sharp lookout for it.
