Natural gas is abundantly buried in the basement of Darvaza in Turkmenistan, which seems to burn like this as a cause.

Originally originated in 1971, a geologist accidentally discovered during the mining that the underground cavity was filled with natural gas. However, the location where the mining equipment was placed collapsed as a large hole with a diameter of about 50 meters to 100 meters. In this state, toxic gases will leak to the ground, so that it will burn the gas with fire It is said that.
