Aircraft carrier USS Franklin (CV-13) attacked during World War II, March 19, 1945.
The carrier is afire and listing after she was hit by a Japanese air attack while operating off the coast of Japan - the crew is clearly seen on deck.After the attack the vessel lay dead in the water, took a 13° starboard list, lost all radio communications, and broiled under the heat from enveloping fires. Many of the crewmen were blown overboard, driven off by fire, killed or wounded, but the hundreds of officers and enlisted who voluntarily remained saved their ship through sheer tenacity. The casualties totaled 724 killed and 265 wounded, and would have far exceeded this number if it were not for the exemplary work of many survivors.
Photographed by PHC Albert Bullock from the cruiser USS Santa Fe (CL-60), which was alongside assisting with firefighting and rescue work.

Centralia, Pennsylvania 

Centralia was a huge mining town in Columbia County. Most of the residents who lived there were miners until the early 1960’s when most of the mining companies went out of business. When the town’s landfill was being cleaned out in 1962 (it was newly located in an abandoned strip-mine pit), an unsealed opening in the pit allowed the fire to enter the abandoned coal mines beneath Centrailia. Attempts to extinguish the fire throughout the 1960’s-70’s were unsuccessful. In 1979, residents became aware of the degree of the matter when a gas station in the town reported a fuel temperature of 172 degrees Fahrenheit (77.8 C). In 1981, a 12 year old almost fell to his death when a 4 foot wide, 150 foot deep sinkhole suddenly opened underneath him. 

$42 million dollars was spent on relocation for the citizens in 1984. The population dropped from 1,000 residents in 1981 to 10 in 2010. Pennsylvania condemned all the town’s houses in 1992. In 2002, Centralia’s zip code was revoked by the U.S. Post Office. Very few homes remain standing in the town due to demolition and nature. The only indication of the underground fire, which underlies about 400 acres, are metal steam vents throughout the town, sinkholes, and signs warning of underground fire, unstable ground, and carbon monoxide. The fire still rages on, and according to experts it could do so for another 250 years.
