p.1 Blazing Boat Sank - Menominee, Mich., July 22nd - Government light keeper Young early Sunday morning saw a steam or sail vessel on fire about seven miles south east of Green Island. He reported to the fire tug Menominee, and that boat went out to the scene, but the fire went out, and the boat sunk before it could be reached. There is no knowledge here as to what boat it was. It was evident that all on board were lost, as no report from anyone on board the vessel has been received.
