1871109日,芝加哥市區附近的發生了一場大火,在大火被撲滅前,已經延燒將近四平方英里的範圍。這場大火燒燬了許多住家與商店,並且造成300人死亡,50萬人無家可歸。當大火四處延燒時,人們盡可能的帶著自己的物品紛紛逃出家中。有一個婦女帶著她的婚紗逃出來,而另一個婦女則帶了一堆肥皂。

The blaze burned homes and shops and left 300 people dead and 500,000 people homeless. As the fire spread, people ran out of their homes, taking with them whatever they could grab. One woman carried a big frame that held her wedding veil, while another carried a pot of soup!
