Yes. That is a coal mine that will burn for decades.
I think that the gases would burn much faster or explode?
Wouldn't they?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23651594


no. any gases released would burn immediately before
they had a chance to collect into any explosive concentrations. (as a consequence the coal is just
slowly, relentlessly and never-endingly just smoldering)

note: there is only enough free oxygen down in there to support "smoldering".

Have you ever seen this?

Doorway to Hell
The Derweze area is rich in natural gas. While drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas.[1] The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70 metres (230 ft) at 40°15′10″N 58°26′22″E / 40.25264°N 58.43941°E / 40.25264; 58.43941 (The Gates of Hell). To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided the best solution was burn it off.[2] Geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today. Locals have dubbed the cavern "The Door to Hell"....
