Malahat (steam Ferry)
The steam ferry Malahat of the Puget Sound Navigation Co., in service on the Seattle - Bremerton route, was swept by a fire of undetermined origin on March 18. She was beached at Manette and her passengers and crew removed, after which her entire upperworks were destroyed by the flames. She was rebuilt and returned to service.
