Olyphant steamed over colliery fire

The fire started in July 2004 when someone set a stolen car on fire and the fire spread to a coal refuse pile then moved underground. The U.S. Office of Surface Mining plans to isolate the 8-acre fire by digging a trench around it and allowing the fire to burn itself out.
