Ali sends in some current pictures of Centralia Today (July
2003) along with her comments below.
Here's some pictures of the damage done. One of the
pictures shows my cousin getting as close as he could to the smoke. The
heat and the smell was unbearable, so I don't know how he could get that close.
There's also some pictures of the old route 61, a warning sign, and a picture of
the cemetery that is right next to the fire. It's in really good shape,
but in the near future it probably won't be so nice. although it's not in
the photo, the right side of the cemetery is starting to burn. - Ali
