Conditions were perfect for a fire. The land was dry. On the same day as the Peshtago Fire in Wisconsin that burned a large amount of Wisconsin, Chicago too had a fire. Four square miles of the city was destroyed and as many as three hundred people lost their lives.

It was the biggest fire in the history of Chicago history. The same day was the Peshtigo Fire, which that is in Wisconsin.

No. The Great Chicago Fire caused the need for the city to rebuild.
