About: RARE Footage & News Stories - Centralia Mine Fire


How interesting ...so much visual history for that area would have been lost if you had not rescued this video. It tells the complete story ..and the quality of the picture wasn't bad at all. Thanks for sharing it.
WHOA!! That hair!
Very interesting
they were right, the fire did move on..
I know there is Coal under the Town and in a Close Region of the Town at Least Over 10 Miles also Has Coal under it to but it hasnt bursted to Flames THANK GOD But Seriously it shiuld be Put out maybe close it of and Pump Water into it
Is the blonde lady who was the mayor the former mayor who lived in the last abandoned house in Centralia?
35:00 ''much more cohesive and much more aggressive '' (in pursuit of their goals).
Kick them out, put out the fires and then pipe a river in to mix with silt and flood the effing mine.
Great video. I wonder if the government could have done more to put out the fire,
I THINK THE VIDEO YOU DID EXPLORING THE MAYORS OLD HOUSE WAS PRETTY GOOD.. BUT I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING...
THE PROM DRESSES IN THE CLOSET MAY HAVE COME FROM THAT DRESS FACTORY...
BECAUSE I LOOKED AT THE FABRICS AND THE STYLE OF DRESS IN THE VIDEO.. KIND OF LOOKS VERY SIMILAR... JUST MY OPINION...
The distortion in this video <3 I love it.
Let's make an interactive silent hill town out of centralia. Make a shit load of money too.

This will set the correct aspect ratio. Great video.
Granny dropping some fresh beats! Club remix plz!
Great video, too bad the mine fire wasn't put out. Too bad Centralia is gone, but I would love to visit Centralia. I think that the government wasn't fair to the citizens, the fire could've been put out but the government was too lazy and treated the citizens like crap. Then over time the fire expanded, I understand they kept running out of money, they could've gotten more money and put it out the right way, not little cheap shots.
At 32:51: a group of women tougher than the fire itself? Vowing to do what the men could not? Spare me, oh cucked one. This guy had to be have been told by his wife what he was going to report, or else.
silent hill is amazing
AND YET THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WOMEN ARE IN CONTROL. TYPICAL FEMINISTS. NOTHING EVER GET'S DONE WHEN WOMEN ARE IN CONTROL.
I'm pretty sure that guy named Napoleon who was interviewed in that first local news clip was the one who recorded/compiled this video. I would be surprised if it were anyone else. Anyway, I've had a fascination with this incident since first reading about it on the EPA's Superfunds site back in the early 2000s, so this was a treat! But yeah, an improved-quality upload would be much appreciated, as others have told you already.
Love your videos, clearly from my area, and you've made it some places I didn't get to explore personally yet , and some I've been out to see myself. Keep up the great work preserving our history.
