p.6 Blaze On A Steamer - The fire department received a telephone call at 12:20 o'clock today to the government dry-dock, where a slight blaze was discovered on board the steamer Argyle. Smoke was seen issuing from the first deck by men employed on the boat and the alarm was sent in. The firemen located the fire as being in the frame of the boat below deck and had evidently caught from a large stove which has been used to keep the boilers warm. The damage was slight.
