Did You Know?
There was a second Chicago Fire in 1874 that caused a significant amount of damage on the near South Side. After this "little Great Fire" insurance companies threatened to desert the city unless reforms were enacted--resulting in actual enforcement of ordinances passed in 1871 and to the revamping of the Chicago Fire Department.
