    I just visited Centralia. My dad’s family is from Coaldale, near Tamaqua. It’s amazing to see, that town is completely gone, save a small number of houses. Eerie atmosphere. I’m so sorry for the folks who lost their hometown forever. I hope the film delves into the engineering reasons they cannot rebuild on that land.

    My house was right next to the municipal building. The wall on the side of the building ran alongside our house. I remember all of us neighborhood kids would go for free lunch there in the summer šŸ™‚

    I was there when it started in 1962. I lived about 2 blocks away. My dad was one of the first 13 families that were evacuated several years later.

    It is a travesty, that fire could burn for centuries, all that valuable anthracite is lost and all that carbon going into the air with poisonous gasses and all for nothing. Such a tragedy the fire was not squelched immediately.
