Suddenly, explosively, the ship burst into flame. Embers thrown by the wind swept across the wharf and landed at Mickle’s feet. “Get out the pump!” he shouted up to the crowd on the deck of the ship General Harrison. Mickle’s fortune was invested in the ship now ringed by fire. (Submitted on December 19, 2013, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
