  • Carhenge – Alliance, Nebraska<number>
  • Mine fires may begin as a result of an industrial accident, generally involving a gas explosion. Historically, some mine fires were started when bootleg mining was stopped by authorities, usually by blowing the mine up. Many recent mine fires have started from people burning trash in a landfill that was in proximity to abandoned coal mines, including the much publicized Centralia, Pennsylvania fire, which has been burning since 1962. Of the hundreds of mine fires in the United States burning today, most are found in the state of Pennsylvania.Some fires along coal seams are natural occurrences. Some coals may self-ignite at temperatures as low as 40 C (104 F) in the right conditions of moisture and grain size. Wildfires (lightning-caused or others) can ignite the coal closer to the surface or entrance, and the smouldering fire can spread through the seam, creating subsidence that may open further seams to oxygen and spawn future wildfires when the fire breaks to the surface It is estimated that Australia's Burning Mountain, the oldest known coal fire, has burned for 6,000 years.[2]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mine_fire<number>
