How an Underground Fire Destroyed an Entire Town

Centralia, PA

Centralia, Pennsylvania. This once-thriving town had a mine fire in 1962 … but it never went out. Most of the town’s residents have moved on though a few insist on staying despite the still-spreading and still-burning fire that covers 400 acres below which may continue to burn for 250 more years.
