bmtv49 The Remains of Centralia

More than 40 years since an underground fire began burning, the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania has all but disappeared. Leaving behind only grave yards, dead trees, empty plots of land from former houses, plumes of smoke from the fire below, and of course.. the few Centralians who have stayed put. This video blog entry was recorded last month, during my visit to Centralia. It features both my and my brother’s testimony, as we surveyed the few traces of a once vibrant community and the fire that still burns underground.
