Would it surprise you to learn that a steamboat named Idaho burned to the waterline and sank on November 26, 1866? This Idaho never knew Lake Coeur d'Alene. Instead, it worked the waters of the East River, New York City.
The Idaho was one of the newer boats of the Brooklyn Ferry Company. Shortly after leaving the dock about 7:10 in the evening, what may have been a smoldering fire broke through the ferry's deck and started to rapidly consume the Idaho. Fortunately, a sister ferry, the Canada, was nearby. The captain of the Canada pulled alongside the burning boat long enough for most of the passengers to jump aboard. Heavy flames forced the Canada to pull away before everyone could get aboard. A woman and her child jumped into the water and were saved from drowning by two men. One of the men suffered serious burns in the rescue, but there were no fatalities.
The Idaho, which was not insured, was a total loss. Authorities estimated it was worth $64,000.
The fire aboard a boat named after the state didn't cause a ripple in Idaho newspapers at the time, so it falls to me to break the news to you 155 years later. You're welcome.
