Great Apps of Fire!

140 years ago, to the day, the Great Chicago Fire fizzled out, leaving 300 dead, 100,000 homeless, and leveling 2,200 acres of city. Now, thanks to Northwestern and the Chicago History Museum, you can download a $.99 iPhone App that carries troves of archival history and takes you on a tour of notable casualties of the fire, scattered all over town.
