Every year on October 9, the nation recognizes Fire Prevention Day in towns all across the U.S., with the entire week designated as Fire Prevention Week.
The first Fire Prevention Day was held in 1920, as a result of the events that led to the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. According to legend, the historic blaze began on Oct. 8 as Mrs. O'Leary was in her barn milking a cow, when the animal kicked over a lamp and ignited the blaze.
