Arrant (Tug), fire, 8 Oct 1875


Description
Full Text

The tug ARRANT, while lying near the Air Line Elevator, Chicago, on Wednesday morning about three o'clock was discovered to be on fire. The flames first issued from the after part of the Pilot House, and were not subdued until nearly all the upper works of the tug had been consumed. A fire engine responded to the alarm at once, and succeeded in extinguishing the flames before any damage was done to the hull. It will cost from $800 to $1,000 to put the tug in good order again. She was not insured.
