The thing about a disaster is we often don’t see it coming until it’s too late.
Today marks the first day of the Great Chicago Fire. The blaze raged from October 8 through October 10, leaving in its wake an estimated $200 million in damages (nearly $4 billion today).
It claimed the lives of some 300 people and destroyed roughly 3.3 square miles of the city, leaving over 100,000 homeless.
Property insurance was an enormous aid. Fire victims were able to rebuild homes and end homelessness, replace personal property, and replace greenery outside of homes—all thanks to insurance.
