STEAMER ON FIRE AT BARRY DOCK. The steamer Norwood, about 3,000 tons, belong- ing to Messrs Christie and Company, of Cardiff, is undergoing repairs at the Barry Graving Dock Company's dock at Barry. At a late hour on Thursday night last a number of rivetters were at work in the forecastle, when a hot rivet is supposed to have fallen amongst some inflammable goods stowed therein, and a portion of the forecastle was in a short time ablaze. At eleven o'clock the firlil was still gaining ground, there being a scarcity of water supply fer extinguishing purposes. The dock and local county police and a numerous staff of helpers were at hand and did all in their power to suppress the outbreak. Long before midnight the Barry Company's tug-boat, Clive, which has steam pumps on board, was playing freely upon the fire, having been connected from the main dock with the burning steamer by means of lengths of hose, and in a short time the flames which had begun to assume threatening propor- tions, were effectually got under, and repairing work was. after some delay, renewed on board by the graving dock hands. Amongst those who rendered useful aid in suppressing the outbreak were Mr T. Lowdon (one of the engineers at the graving dock works), Police-sergeant W. Gammon, Dock-constables W. H. John, James Mayled, W. Atkins, W. D. Ralph, and Guy Franks, with the crew of the Clive, and workmen at the graving dock. The damage done by the fire is not as great as was at one time feared. In the endeavour to put out the flames which gained so rapidly in the forecastle, a young man from Cadoxton. belonging to the gang of repairers, severely burnt himself about the hands and arms, and he had to be sent home for treatment.
