  • | Centralia Navigation Centralia PA inspires the making of the movie Silent Hill Centralia Mine Fire Books By Richard McDonnell Photo Updates: Looking for a reason to visit Centralia? Plan your visit around one of Pennsylvania's best kept secrets located only 15 miles up the road from Centralia

  • A Pennsylvania community consumed by an underground mine fire

  • The burning trash caught the exposed vein of coal on fire

  • The fire was thought to be extinguished but it apparently wasn't when it erupted in the pit a few days later

  • Again the fire was doused with water for hours and thought to be out

  • For the next two decades, workers battled the fire, flushing the mines with water and fly ash, excavated the burning material and dug trenches, backfilled, drilling again and again in an attempt to find the boundaries of the fire and plan to put the fire out or at least contain it

  • By the early 1980s the fire had affected approximately 200 acres and homes had to be abandoned as carbon monoxide levels reached life threatening levels

  • An engineering study concluded in 1983 that the fire could burn for another century or even more and "could conceivably spread over an area of approximately 3, 700 acres." As time passed, each feeble attempt to do anything to stop the fire or help the residents of Centralia would cost more and more due to the fires progression

    Mine Fire, Centralia, Pennsylvania
    Photos of the area and advice for people interesting in visiting the site of the
    underground fire.

  • Sight: Town: | Centralia Mine Fire Centralia, No one knows exactly how it started, but a coal vein has been burning under the Pennsylvania mining town of Centralia since 1961

  • The fire crawled, insidiously, along coal-rich deposits far from the miner's pick, venting hot and poisonous gases up into town, through the basements of homes and businesses

  • With dawning horror (and chronic carbon monoxide headaches), residents came to realize that the fire was not going to be extinguished, or ever burn itself out -- at least not until all the interconnected coal veins in eastern Pennsylvania were spent in some epic, meatless barbecue

  • We heard the details at the Centralia branch of the county fire department, the only new building constructed since the fire started

  • 'The media played up the whole thing.' It's dusk, and we don't see any signs of the fire

  • Has it finally gone out? 'Nah, ' says the old timer, 'Fire moved up that way.' He points over our shoulders, and, sure enough, lazy smoke curls out among the trees and a couple of doomed 2-story frame houses...

  • The fire continues and has moved up into the cemetery, smoke visible wafting up from around the gravestones

  • Alternative Science | Burning issue [ ] [ ] Spontaneous Human Combustion In August 1999, broadcast in prime time a film in its prestigious science series 'QED', entitled The film was ambitious both as science and as reporting, for it set out to debunk once and for all the centuries-old belief that, under some mysterious circumstances, humans can catch fire and be almost entirely consumed, even in the security of their own homes

  • The film's narrator, Samuel West, told viewers that, 'This film has brought together for the first time the world's top fire experts and follows their quest to solve the mystery of Spontaneous Human Combustion.' The film's method was persuasive

  • First it showed experienced, intelligent and sincere professionals -- a fire chief and a police officer -- swearing that the bodies they found could only be cases of Spontaneous Human Combustion

  • are convinced that, like other fires, these fires are most commonly started by a careless match or cigarette and they believe there is a simple explanation of how this can reduce the body to ash.' 'The scientific explanation -- the 'wick effect' -- proposes that in certain rare circumstances the human being can burn like a candle.' The explanation advanced by the film makers was that a clothed human body is like an inside-out candle where the fat, or fuel source, is inside and the wick is outside

    Fire and You
    An article from Widdershins, the Northwest's finest Pagan newspaper. A comprehensive
    how-to article.

  • Fire and You by Andy Standout Box This is fire

  • Fire is dangerous

  • Keep that in mind when fire scrying

  • Light your fire in an open area, leave space around it

  • Also be aware that your fire alarm will probably go off if you are indoors and don't turn it off

  • It has taken on a nice burnished, rainbowy look from all the fires

  • Light it on fire with a long match or already lit long candle

  • The fire won't roar up instantly, but it will do it quickly enough that you will be grateful for the length of the match

  • I lit myself on fire once this way

  • Ninety-nine percent fires will also leave more ash and be more likely to set off the smoke detector

  • Look at the fire to see if it will actually light anything else on fire

  • Unlike wax/oil fires, you can put rubbing alcohol fires out with water so keep a lot handy

  • Just drop the towel over fire

  • Ninety-nine percent alcohol will produce more interesting fires, but seventy percent will hurt less if you are burned

  • A bottle of burn cream or a fire extinguisher, even though you will probably never use them, will greatly reassure the pyrophobes around you
