Rushville, Indiana - Natural natural gas flame

Rushville, Indiana has a large natural deposit of natural gas beneath it. Throughout most of the county, there are large natural gas wells that people tap to provide heat for their homes. North of town there is a natural hole, about one foot in diameter, where natural gas freely flows up and out of its well. If you light a match and throw it over the hole, a flame appears and will continue burning until something is placed over the hole (we used a metal trash can lid). Not exactly sure on the location, but it was cool.
