The Old Norseman Afire In Graveyard.

The old steambarge Norman which was run aground at Collins Bay, not long ago, was burned to the water's edge on Friday. The barge was dismantled and sent aground in the bay a short time ago by its owners, the Donnelly Wrecking company. Last Sunday it was struck by lightning and caught fire. On account of the dampness of the wood, it burned very slowly. On Monday the Donnelly people sent out three men to see what could be done. They thought they put out the blaze but it smouldered and ignited again, and gained headway as the timbers dried. It had developed into quite a fire before Friday when the vessel was burned to the water. The hulk is now quite dangerous as it cannot be seen above water. In its present condition it is said to be a menace to boats passing to and fro and will have to be removed.
