The Ocean Monarch Fire 1848

The Ocean Monarch by Liverpool Marine Painter Samuel Walters
who is buried at Anfield Cemetary

Do you have any information concerning the fire in Liverpool area back in about Nov. 29, 1848?  William Strand (my Great Grand-father) was a seamen on the vessel “New World” and assisted saving citizens on the vessel “The Ocean Monarch”.  Any assistance on finding news articles and/or pictures would be appreciated.

Thank you,
