The Great Chicago Fire of October 8-10, 1871, is one of many historic local events reported by the Second City's largest newspaper. Before front-page news was printed on the front page of a newspaper, a reader needed to look inside for the story. In this 8 October 1871 edition, the Trib reports the first headlines on page 3, opposite an insurance company's ad reminding residents to "prepare for fall and winter fires."
