It seems the church was still operating in 2018

Agains you walk around there... Be careful dear... I'm worried about u....
God bless you aminn.. 🙏🙏🙏
I grew up in Boulder CO and the town of Erie a few miles away has about 50 mines under it. A fire has been burning under there since early 1900’s also. Also the town of New Castle has had one burning for 120 years. They have built so many subdivisions now in Erie they have sinking homes, streets that cave in, sinkholes and other problems due to mine tunnels collapsing underneath.
I've often wondered.... What would happen if a river was re-routed into these caves? Would it put the fires out or just exacerbate the situation?
Nice video.
Highway 61 Revisited!
Wow! Just had to comment, even though I know this is a really old clip. There was a singer from Pennsylvania, named Erik Peterson (now deceased) who created a folk punk band called Mischief Brew. They have a song, "O, Pennsyltucky" and filmed a video for it in this area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXSfZ4Op1QU
I want to retire there.
Centralia is not a safe place to be for a number of reasons- only one of them being the fire.
Sounds like you do your homework on these places. It seems that you could cook a meal over one of those vents. Good explore, thank you
And lemme guess the MAYOR who runs unopposed every election is STILL collecting taxpayer funds?

They say this is what silent hill is based on. That's kinda cool I like silent hill
You should check out Ace's Adventure.
Actually, what you're seeing here is a gargantuan fire god that roams underground in the area.
