This Ghost Town In Pennsylvania Has Been On Fire For Over 50 Years
Some have heard of it, some have not: Centralia, the ghostly city in the middle of Pennsylvania. A seemingly innocuous, Memorial Day trash dump started the fire… (Some say Billy Joel started it, but they’re wrong.) The raging coal mine fire has been burning ever since, and in 1962 the government declared eminent domain to evict the town’s few remaining residents.
