A fire broke out on the American
ship May Flint, -well known in Hono
lulu, on the night of the 5th, says the
Kobe Chronicle of the 7th, and proved
a most difficult one to extinguish. It
was 0 p. m. when the ship was dis
covered to be on fire, and Mr. Sim as
Superintendent of the Settlement Fire
Brigade being at once apprised of the
outbreak called out his men. Two
pumps were put aboard lighters and
taken to the ship, where work was at
once commenced, but it was soon
found that more pumps were needed,
and these were brought out by lighters
towed by Mr. Sim's launch. Firemen
were stationed in the 'tween decks
with the hose, but failed to make any
impression upon the fire, which, des
pite their efforts, made headway. At
4 o'clock in the morning the firemen
were driven out of the 'tween decks
by the intensity of the heat and
smoke. It was then decided to beach
the ship. Mr. Sim's launch and two
launches belonging to Messrs. Nickel
& Co., which had been standing by,
towed the vessel by the stern down the
bay and beached her in Z fathoms of
All this time the pumps had been
kept going continually, and now, in
order that more effectual work might
be done, the yards were all swung on
the port side and the ships was listed.
A large hole had been made in the
port side of the ship, and the launches
now tugging at lines fastened to masts
pulled the vessel over with the object
of filling her with water, bun tna
fire could not easily be extinguished
because of the two water-tight com
partments, but at 11 o'clock the fire
was at last reported to be out.
Pumping, however, was continued
and at 12 o'clock it was aiscovereu
after about 100 cases of kerosene had
been removed that the ship was burn-
ins still. While part of the fire bri
gade continued work at the pumps the
other cut .holes m tne water-nguu
compartments, and at 4 o'clock, when
the shin had got 32 feet of water in
her.' the fire was considered to have
been completely extinguished. &ne ib
now filled with water to within two
inches of the deck.
Tr has not vet been ascertained now
the fire originated or in what part of
the ship. The cargo was kerosene oil,
hnr evidently the oil had not been ig
nited, or the. only thing to have been
-done would have been to tow ner oui
into the middle of the bay and let her
