Calumet County
Reports from Chilton say that fragments of the great fire at Oshkosh fell in several parts of the county. Papers, shingles, pieces of calico, and other fabrics, and even books partially burned fell as far east as the towns of Charleston and New Hostein. The ascending column of heated air at the great fire was so strong that light materials were carried upward to a great height, and were borne eastward by a strong wind prevailing at the time. The distance to which some fragments were blown exceeded twenty-five miles.
