Dominion (Propeller), C90707, fire, 1 Oct 1900

Full Text

The small Canadian steamer DOMINION was burned to the water's edge while lying at the Sulphur Springs Canal, below Sandwich, Ont. The vessel was without cargo, having arrived down from the Soo two weeks ago with pulp wood. Capt. Edward Horn says he was preparing the boat for winter quarters and does not know how the fire started. The insurance was very light.
