The aftermath

After the devastating fire, 3.7 million acres of land was destroyed. Over 1500 people lost their lives and millions of dollars were lost due to property damage and timber loss.

Killed many people and left many without a home

Children and adults died

Wasn't noticed right away.

The Peshtigo fire was not noticed by outsiders because on the same day, there was a fire in the city of Chicago and that got more attention because of Chicago's population.
