Storyline

A small town in upstate Pennsylvania is overcome by a massive underground mine fire which began in May of 1962. After many failed attempts by the government to put out the fire, it grew larger and moved beneath most of the town. By 1980, hundreds of residents had to be relocated and eminent domain was eventually enforced, forcing the remaining residents out of their homes. A group of residents filed a lawsuit and fought the state of Pennsylvania for the right to stay in their homes. By 2013, the case was settled and granted those remaining residents life estates. Written by Joe Sapienza II

Trivia

Two crane shots were used for David DeKok's intro of the film, both were cut due to time. The first crane shot was only four takes due to the wind and cold weather. After the fourth take, Mr. DeKok could barely speak and had to sit in a warm car for about 20 minutes. See more »
