Today in History: Great Chicago fire of 1871

The fire that destroyed most of Chicago’s business district began in a barn on the evening of October 8, 1871. A very dry summer and early autumn fanned the fire, which raged for 2 days. It killed over 300 people and destroyed property worth millions of dollars.
