Storyline

A small town is overcome by a massive underground coal fire in 1962. After many failed attempts by the government to put out the fire, it grew larger and moved beneath most of the town. As a result hundreds of residents had to be relocated. By 1993, under governor Casey, eminent domain was declared forcing the remaining residents out of their homes. Only a group of residents fought the state and stayed. By 2013, a handful of remaining residents won their case against the state which granted them life estates in Centralia. Written by Joe Sapienza II

Trivia

Originally the exteriors of the town were to be shot in January 2014. The producers and crew decided to take a chance and shoot some of the location along with a couple interviews. However, after the first interview with Tom Dempsey and on the way to Centralia, one of the cars got a flat tire pushing shots two hours behind. See more »
