There is a town in Pennsylvania called Centralia that has essentially become a ghost town due to an underground fire in it’s coal mines. This fire has been burning for 40 years and could continue to keep burning for something like a 100 more…. Most of the townsfolk left, but there are still a few people who refused any sort of government compensation and stayed…. I guess they decided living with burning earth and toxic fumes would be the noble thing to do??
