Inferno Village

For 100 years, Jharia town in India has lived on top of a perpetually burning coal field. Once green and beautiful, the region is now scorched and barren, many houses have been devoured by the ever-growing pit, while its people are suffering from a wide range of respiratory diseases. Despite the danger, most families daren’t relocate because coal provides their only means of income.
