Centralia Pennsylvania

On my last visit to Centralia PA, these were two of the last few houses still standing. Centralia is the location of a mine fire that has been burning underground since May of 1962. For a very good account of this disaster read David DeKok's book: "Fire Underground: The Ongoing Tragedy of the Centralia Mine Fire."
