Response to CompanyFirstSergeant (Original post)

2. I remember watching a documentary on this town

As I recall, a bunch of garbage was being burned at the town dump and a small sinkhole opened up into the coal caverns below. The coal caught fire and before anyone realized the coal had lit, the fire was too big to put out.

Unless they pour half of the Pacific Ocean into those caverns, that fire will burn for several hundred years.
