Geologists in Arkansas have an intriguing puzzle to solve. Fire chief of the Midway Volunteer Fire District found flames shooting from hole in the ground. Of course, no one can explain this phenomenon.


Donald Tucker said that there were flames about 260 cm high shooting out of a hole about 60 cm in diameter, and it burned that way for 30 to 45 minutes before it went out. A more detailed inspection showed that the hole is about 100 cm deep.

Local experts said that the hole was hardly a result of a meteorite crash or a lightning strike. Fire chief Donald Tucker said that there is no gas lines nearby and there was no smell of natural gas. So how it was created and why it shoots flames?
