Watertown Times May 16, 1926 #

The Charles Horne, which had been drydocked in Ogdensburg all winter, left Buffalo Saturday morning carrying a cargo of 32,000 bushels of grain. She was a 920-ton, 212-foot boat. When 48 miles from Cape Vincent and 26 miles from Main Ducks near the Point Peter Light, six men sleeping in the forward quarters were awakened by the fire and sounded the fire alarm at 10:30 Saturday night. Before the pumps could be started dense volumes of smoke were rolling from the bow, driving Captain Christensen and the wheelsman from the bridge. The progress of the ship was at once stopped and the entire crew started fighting the fire. Fifteen minutes after the fire was discovered the men were forced to abandon the ship in lifeboats. The lake was calm and they had no difficulty in getting away in the boats. Captain Christensen said today that he could get no information regarding the origin of the blaze. The men who were asleep in the forward quarters reported that they were awakened by the smell of smoke and by the time they got sufficiently dressed to get out the smoke was too dense for investigation.
