After the fire had gained good headway, three men who were aboard of her left fearing the explosion of some 40 gallons of gasoline which was in the supply tank. M. Mershon, an engineer in the sawmill at Terminal Island, rowed up in his skiff at the risk of being blown up, went aboard the burning vessel and for three hours worked incessantly with a pall throwing water around the gasoline tank and machinery. The fire finally, with the help of others was put out after the boat was run aground in shallow water.
