This Is Happening Around The Globe: Sinkhole Spewing Fire Discovered In China

I do understand why villagers were left baffled and horrified, when they stumble upon this giant hole spewing fire!

That 3ft-large sinkhole was discovered spewing fire and incredible heat in a hillside on the outskirts of Urumqi, in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in north-western China.

The heat being released by the crater is so intense (792°C or 1457°F) that experts can’t get close enough to determine how deep the hole is.

According to locals, the ground in that area had started to warm up for some time… But who would have thought about an underground fire?

The hill is indeed not in a volcanic area. But smoke has often been reported rising from underground on this hill during spring and autumn.

Geologists suggest the fire sinkhole was caused by an underground spontaneous combustion of coal:

“Primitive mining and extinguishing techniques caused coal to burn deep under the ground, which then burned towards the surface.”

This flaming crater just reminds me of Jharia, a town in India built over a eternal burning pit that kills and terrifies locals for more than 100 years.

Yes I would also get pretty much crazy if a mysterious 3ft-wide hole started spewing fire just in front of my nose! Find similar strange stories on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [CEN]
