It was once believed that the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was caused by a cow, owned by a woman named O'Leary, which when she tipped over a lantern. A competing legend exonerates the hapless bovine, placing guilt on Peg Leg Sullivan, who not only started the blaze, but also framed the cow. The Fire Truck Tours recount these stories and fill in any missing details. Climb aboard a vintage fire truck and view the damage caused by Chicago's famous conflagration.
