The Great Chicago Fire started at about 9am and burned for 3,000 minutes between October 8th and October 10th, 1871. Chicago had experienced twenty smaller fires in the 20,000 minutes leading up to the blaze, due to drought conditions, strong winds, and the abundance of wooden buildings at the time.
