This Town Has Been Burning For More Than Fifty Years, And Will For Much Longer
Posted by GreaterGoodness
What began as a small coal mine fire back the 60’s, over time turned into a major problem for the small Pennsylvania town of Centralia. Reduced to having just 11 residents now, after the government bought out many that once lived there, once they’re gone, so too is the town. The fire, which burns deep beneath the ground, cannot be stopped or contained. It burns on and will continue to do so for another couple hundred years.
