According to popular legend, the fire occurred when a cow - belonging to Ms. Catherine O'Leary - kicked over a lamp, tighten first the barn, then throughout the city on fire. It is likely that you have heard some version of this story yourself; people have been blaming the great fire of Chicago in the cow and the Mrs. o ' Leary, for more than 130 years. But recent research by the historian of Chicago Robert Cromie has contributed to discredit this version of events.
Like any good story, the case of the cow has some truth in it. Almost certainly the great fire started near the barn where Ms. O'Leary maintained their five cows milking. But there is no evidence that O'Leary was in the barn when burst fire - or that a cow jumpy caused the fire. Ms. O'Leary she swore that she had been in bed early that night, and that the cows were also crammed the night. But if a cow was not to blame for the great fire, what was? Over the years, journalists and historians have offered plenty of theories. Some blamed the fire a couple of neighborhood boys who were near the barn sneaking cigarettes. Others believed that a neighbor of the O'Leary may have started the fire. Some people have speculated that a fiery meteorite may have fallen to Earth on 8 October, from several fires that day - in Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as in Chicago.
The week's largest fire was to wreck havoc on unprepared families. While the great Chicago fire was the best-known fire starts in this section two days burning, was not the greatest. This distinction goes to the fire in Peshtigo, the most devastating fire in American history. The fire, which also took place on 08 October 1871 and roared through Northeast Wisconsin, burning down 16 towns, killing 1,152 people and scorching 1.2 million acres before end. Historical accounts of the fire said that the fire began when several railroad workers clean earth for clues unintentionally started a brush fire. In a short time, the quick flames were whipping through the area as a tornado,' some survivors, said. It was the small town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin, which suffered the worst damage. Within an hour, the entire city had been destroyed. This should let you understand how important Fire Prevention is and to be prepared for these fires with proper Fire Safety! Those who survived the Peshtigo and Chicago fires never forgot what had been both fire produced countless stories of bravery and heroism. But the fire also changed the way in which firefighters and Government officials conceived in fire safety. On the 40th anniversary of the great Chicago Fire, the marshalls of the fire Association of America of the North (today known as the international Fire Marshalls Association), decided that the anniversary of the great fire of Chicago from here on should be observed not with festivities, but in a way that keeps the public informed about the importance of fire prevention. The Memorial grew gradually official over the years.
In 1920, President Woodrow Wilson issued the first proclamation of national fire prevention day, and since 1922, fire prevention week has been observed on Sunday for period of Saturday in which falls on October 9.

Fire protection is the study and practice of mitigating the effects of unwanted potentially destructive fires. It includes the study of behaviour, compartmentalisation, suppression and fire research and its related emergencies, as well as research and development, production, testing and implementation of mitigation.
