Now a ghost town, Centralia was a small community in the mountains of Columbia County, Pennsylvania, that in the early to mid 1900's had an average population of 2,400 residents. On May 27, 1962 the Centralia Borough Council hired five members of the volunteer fire company to clean up the town landfill, located in an abandoned strip-mine pit next to the Odd Fellows Cemetery just outside the borough limits. This had been done prior to Memorial Day in previous years, when the landfill was in a different location. The firefighters, as they had in the past, set the dump on fire and let it burn for some time. Unlike in previous years, however, the fire was not fully extinguished. An unsealed opening in the pit allowed the fire to enter the labyrinth of abandoned coal mines beneath Centralia. The borough, by law, was responsible for installing a fire-resistant clay barrier between each layer, but fell behind schedule, leaving the barrier incomplete. This allowed the hot coals to penetrate the vein of coal underneath the pit and start the subsequent subterranean fire. Centralia's population, as of the 2010 census, was reported to be 10 resisdents.

Here's a pretty fascinating look at the huge quarry operation that Vulcan Materials has near Rockingham, NC. You'll get a good look at the open pit, the gear used to mine and move the stone, and the conveyor system used to separate the aggregate. This quarry is just off Highway 74 heading west at Cordova, NC. Lots of dump trucks, trackhoes, drilling and pumping devices in this video as well.
