Pipeman assigned to the steamer Danbury No. 1, was injured while fighting a fire at P. J. Kelly's Saloon on the east side of Main Street just north of Adams at 3:30 a.m. on April 22, 1883. He was one of two firefighters injured when a wall collapsed during the fire. He was removed from the rubble and it appeared that he was not seriously injured. However, the effects of his injuries lingered on and Peter McManus died on November 14,1884.
