Safety is always on the minds of firefighters,
especially as we kick off National Fire Prevention week.
through Saturday, and representatives from Wheeling Fire Department have
announced they'll be visiting local businesses and hosting a series of
open houses dedicated to keeping you safe.
National Fire Prevention
week pays tribute to The Great Chicago Fire that occurred on October 8
and 9 of 1871. More than 250 people were killed in that blaze and 100,000 more were left homeless.
