Kerosene Scene

On the night of October 8, 1871, a fire broke out in Chicago, Illinois, burning up a chunk of the city and causing death and destruction. The fire lasted 3 days.

The tale is that Mrs. O’Leary’s cow kicked over a kerosene lamp, igniting the straw in her barn. True or false, nobody knows for sure. It makes a colorful myth anyway.

Note to our Readers: no Rhinos were hurt creating this post. Or Cows, for that matter.
