There are all sorts of risks we take everyday-- chemicals in our food. Air pollution. Stress.... The residents of Centralia, Pennsylvania have all that, plus one more thing: an inextinguishable underground fire that's been burning under their town since 1962. How it set neighbor against neighbor... and why it caused one man to throw a cat at a woman in a bank. This, and other stories about people's fascination with, and fear of, fire.
