When Worland Volunteer firefighters were called to a blaze at Smet Recycling in Wyoming they were met with probably the weirdest fire I think I've ever seen , an eerily beautiful surfer mound fire.


Burning sulfur creates sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas that has a very strong, choking odor. The fire was burning in a “bowl” shaped area, allowing all runoff to be collected in the fire area.
A minimal amount of water was used to cool the surface of the sulfur and reduce the temperature below the molten stage. Adding water to an SO2 gas creates sulfurous acid, (not to be confused with sulfuric acid) which can be related to “acid rain”. Apparatus and personnel placement as well as careful monitoring of the weather conditions in relation to smoke and chemical plume is very important.

The deposits in rural Washakie County are leftover from the Texas Gulf Sulfur Plant that operated north of Worland in the 1950’s. Much of the sulfur is mixed heavily with soil and is not 100% sulfur concentrate. This is a type of fire that is not common but needs to be addressed and dealt with safely and quickly.


How cool is that ?

I hope Smet Recycling has an endorsement for Pollution cleanup, otherwise they could be liable for some hefty damages.

I've never seen a fire like this - super cool video. Thanks for sharing!

I don't think it looks too weird. It just looks like a dense liquid being burned with a strong wind blowing on it.

Someone posted a thread a time back about sulfur minning in Indonesia.

Couldn't find the thread, but here is an article.

Cool video! Here is a fire that caught my attention a little more than a year ago due to the bust of Nikola Tesla in front of the cathedral, and just the eerie combination of holy place and hell-fire:

3 Orthodox Churches all caught fire on or near Orthodox Easter

Having Jesse Ventura rip your puny arms out while getting attacked by swans might be up there as well.
