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." 

Read about the early days of "the Trib" and view a timeline of its history in the Chicago Tribune history pages.
