Cantaln Lyons stated this morning
that the steam would be kept on the
furnace racing In the hold until the
lime had been all slacked, when he
thinks the flra will be extinguished.
This morning Chief Thurston of tho
city fire departmenL went on board
the Texan to Investigate, but took no
action. Ho waa In consultation toe
some time with the captain and other
officials, ot the company.
So hot has the aide of the vessel bo
come that a person several feet away
on tho docks can feel the heat radiat
ing from It. The heat becomes un
comfortable when one gets too near
tho side of the ship.
To put water on the flames would be
dangerous, and would not only destroy
much of the cargo that might other
wise be saved, but would cause tbe lime
to generate moro heat than ever. If
the steam can keep the flames from
spreading until the lime has been ex
hausted, It Is believed the damage to
the remainder ot the cargo will be lim
ited to a great extent.
Owing to the fire In the hold the
Texan will bo kept In port for some
time, It Is believed, for loading cannot
be carried on until the names are out.
