Free Chicago Fire Fact:
As the fire spread across the city homeowners would often run back into their burning houses in order to save clothing, furniture and other precious family property. (Don’t ever do that today. It was harder to replace that stuff back then.) Unfortunately they would watch in horror as sparks from the fire would fall on the piles of clothes/furniture/stuff causing even more fires.
Awesome, huh? Wait ‘til you take the tour! Plus a chance for free Juicy Fruit.
