Fire threatens a mine abandoned in the 70's near Trevorton. Hopefully it is early enough that it can be put out. https://www.dailyitem.com/news/dep-fire-burning-i ... dc150.html

The link says it's old tires that are burning.

A sulpher smell has been reported as well as the tire smoke.

Lehigh made the news awhile back.
There is drone footage showing the massive crack.
