I just found out about the coal mine in Centralia Pennsylvania today on the history channel. They said that it has enough fuel to burn for 1,000 years. I was going to see if any body on here has heard anything about this or if you have ever been there.
I heard about this a long time ago. It has been going strong for quite awhile. From what i understand sometimes the foundations of homes will settle and crack from the results of the fire. It will be burning for a looooooong time.
I go past Centralia every summer and have been since my childhood. From what I can remember you used to go through the town, but now they have put in a roadway that takes you around the town. Centralia has essentially become a thing of the past. Most homes and buildings have been demolished and most townspeople have been relocated. To the best of my knowledge the Centralia Fire company is still operating or at least there are trucks visible through the windows when I last drove by.
