Wheeling Firefighters to Visit Local Businesses During Fire Prevention Week

Posted: Updated:

Safety is always on the minds of firefighters, especially as we kick off National Fire Prevention week.

It lasts 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.
