Long-burning Mine Fire in Northeastern Pa. is Finally Contained

Note that it’s not out — it’s just contained — they built an $11million trench around the thing. It’ll still be decades before the burning stops. “Olyphant Councilman Jerry Tully is one who would like to see more action to put out the fire. Tully says while the fire is still burning it is keeping people from developing the land.” Wow, ya think?
