The Great Chicago Fire was a large destructive fire that burned from Sunday, October 8, to early Tuesday, October 10, 1871. It killed up to 300 people,
destroyed roughly 3.3 square miles of
Chicago, Illinois, and left more than
100,000 residents homeless
. The fire started at about 9:00 p.m. on October 8,
in or around a small barn belonging to the O’Leary family.
The shed next to
the barn was the first building to be consumed by the fire, but city officials
never determined the exact cause of the blaze. There has, however, been
much speculation over the years.

medal.

Klas Ostergren, a member of the Swedish Academy, said the 75-year-old
