Centralia Mine Fire

Saves: 10
Check-ins: 0
Burning underneath the borough of the dead city of Centralia is a coal seam mine fire that doomed this town slowly since May 27, 1962. Suspected to have been set deliberately from trash burning in the former strip mine, this fire ignited a coal seam which continues to burn at a 300 mile depth for 3,700 acres and could continue burning for close to 300 years! Most of the town is now abandoned and the buildings have been leveled.
