The Great Chicago Fire wasn't the worst fire ever to hit the United States. It wasn't the worst fire in 1871. It wasn't even the worst fire in October of 1871... The second episode in our October of Sorrow features one of the gnarliest fires yet, and maybe even a "darkbar". Human torches, flaming logs, and hell on Earth.
