    50th Anniversary of Centralia, PA Fire

    There are 5 holdout/remaining homeowners.

    I did not know the town dump fire started this. Not a good day for the Fire Dept.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    That holdout thing is pretty interesting to me. In a sense it seems pretty ridiculous that the state is still trying to force those people out after 50 years. At this point, I'd just get them to sign a release saying they know the dangers of remaining on that property and then just wait them out. The people who remain are old and won't be there much longer anyway.
