Moritz Arke died in a house fire in Chicago on the 24th of July 1894. He was a night watchman at the Chicago Malleable Iron Works and was either leaving for work or returning from work when a fire broke out in the butcher shop across the street from his home. He ran into one of the burning buildings to save some children who were reportedly inside, but lost his life to this false report.

He was survived by his wife, and four children, one who was born 2 months after his death.
