THE CUTTERS, Owasco Duane, summoned to the scene by an early morning distress call, were unable to send anyone aboard to helpl fight Ihe flames because of. high seas, the Coast Guard; said. No injuries were1 reported among passengers and crew. The fire broke out early lo-, day in the No. 3 hold of the! Mormactcal, which left New: York Wednesday on a voy- age to South America. While the crew struggled to pill out this blaze, a second fire broke nut in the No. 1 hold. It was put out after a biitile of nearly three hours.'
