Sparta (Propeller), U115242, fire, 28 Aug 1904
- Full Text
Fire was discovered around the engine-room of the steamer SPARTA, while she was lying at the Ohio Central coal dock at Toledo last night. Owing to the inability of fire engines to reach the boat quickly, the fire gained great headway, and it took two hours to control it. The blaze was confined to the boat's stern, which was burned almost to the water's edge. The loss is estimated at $20,000. The boat is owned by Meyer & Mills of Port Huron.
