    Centralia, Pennsylvania. This ghost town has had a mine fire burning for 46 years, resulting in the town’s abandonment. They used this town as an inspiration for the Silent Hill film.

    One of the places I’d kill to visit.

    All they need are R.O.U.S. and you could call this the Fire Forest…

    I gotta visit this place. Are the fires still burning?

    Yeah, the fires are still burning. If you go you can see the smoke billowing up out of the ground, and few sad and pathetic buildings that are left. There is also an abandoned section of highway, where the road used to go straight now takes a sharp turn to go around the burning area.

    Wanted to check this place out since I read Bill Bryson’s account of it.
