Centralia, Pennsylvania
 

          

It's not hard to find Centralia...                                              ...But why would you want to?
 

Devoid of all life, dirt and rock mark the underground fire's past progress
 

Steam and smoke escape through a myriad of crevices
 

Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection monitor underground temperatures.
At a depth of ten feet: 270° - Twenty-five feet: 360°. Highest temperatures found: 750°+.
 

  

A weather-beaten picket fence and dying trees mark this lot          Brick columns buttress the walls of a lonely row house
