Departments to mark National Fire Prevention Week
The McHenry County Fire Chiefs Association encourages residents to join area fire departments in commemorating National Fire Prevention Week.
Fire Prevention Week was established to mark the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. More than 250 people died and 100,000 were left homeless in the fire, which burned for two days.
Between the start of the fire Oct. 8 and when it was brought under control Oct. 9, 17,400 structures burned.
