In relation to this, did you also know that there are naturally occurring eternal flames discovered in different locations?
Door To Hell
The Door to Hell, also known as the Gate to Hell, is a crater of fire in Derweze, Turkmenistan. In the 1970s Soviet petrochemical engineers discovered the natural gas field. After setting up a drilling rig operation, the site collapsed. There were no deaths, but a large quantity of poisonous methane gas gushed from the site. To prevent the spread of methane gas, geologists set it on fire. Through the years, it has become a popular tourist attraction because it has never ceased to burn.
Eternal Flame Falls
The Eternal Flame Falls is a small waterfall found in Shale Creek Preserve south of Chestnut Ridge Park in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Scientists have yet to discover how the flame works. A recent study conducted found that the ground around the falls is not hot enough to ignite the gas in the park.
