Adding to the list of notable fires: the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire in New York City.
Perhaps the fire in Chicago was the Columbia Exposition fire in 1891. Or the Union Stockyards fire in 1910. The infamous Great Chicago fire that destroyed the city was in1871. The url below lists the great fires in Illinois.
