The Great Fire By: Jim Murphy

The Great Fire was in Chicago. It started in the O'Leary's farm on Sunday, October 8, 1871.

Chicago was mostly made of wood. Before the fire started, it had 600 miles of wooden sidewalks.

Firefighters would get so close to the fire that thier hair would singe and thier clothes would begin to catch fire. Some of the firefighters had no experience.

The fire finally ended after two days because of rain at 11 o'clock p.m.

Residents of Chicago would sell fire relics to tourists.

The Great Fire left many people homeless. There was much sickness at this time especially among children.
