About: How A Fire Can Burn Underground for Thousands of Years

Hey Seeker you’re a little off on the oldest mine fire in the states. in New Straitsville, Ohio the local mine has been on fire for 134 years. It started when striking miners caught the local mine on fire in 1884. Most recently in 2003 parts of Wayne national forest had areas effected by the underground fire.

Fires need fuel , oxygen and temperature .... So we can drill and send oxygen in ... This way entire coal will burn out and we can reclaim the land
