Have you ever heard of Centralia Pennsylvania? Assuming you haven’t, Its a modern day ghost town located 70 miles southwest of Scranton. Abandoned in the 1980’s due to an underground mine fire that started in 1962, it has been burning ever since.
“This was a world where no human could live, hotter than the planet Mercury, its atmosphere as poisonous as Saturn’s. At the heart of the fire, temperatures easily exceeded 1,000 degrees [Fahrenheit]. Lethal clouds of carbon monoxide and other gases swirled through the rock chambers.” —David DeKok, Unseen Danger: A Tragedy of People, Government, and the Centralia Mine Fire (University of Pennsylvania Press, 1986)
