Natural gas does not smell, naturally.


Well not pure natural gas but if coming from a compost pile it has other odors and since the hole was so shallow some of the trash may have been burning unseen.

The smell is likely the biggest clue here that points to compost pile.

Natural gas has no smell ever unless given an additive. A compost pile has very little nat gas properties. You would be smelling, um, poop, not natural gas.

There's no gas lines nearby and there was no smell of natural gas.


Doesn't mean it wasn't natural gas. Natural gas has no odor unless it's been treated. Arkansas has fracking, incidentally. Are there any fracks nearby?

Could be a toxic waste dump too, containing petroleum and/or plastic materials.

My theory: Something ignited in an old bomb shelter.

Mel's, hole of the Art Bell guests fame, smelly hole? Sure seems like it has to do with fracking. That or unless the smell comes from people burning trash in it. Search yielded that Midway, Arkansas banned fracking? One source - here..

The guy that showed up to investigate doesn't sound like he was very qualified.

What color were the flames?

Shooting out? As in campfire style or shooting like a torch?

Those two questions answered would go a long way into resolving the mystery.


Dude, I could only star you, but wish I could give applause. This mystery in Arkansas naturally lends itself to many jokes. You were a bigger man ( or woman) and responded logically and scientifically. You are right, where are the forensics regarding this mysterious flaming hole? Any observer should be able to share what colors the flame was showing. This is a fascinating mystery and I hope the jokesters did not scare off the real ATS sleuths from finding out what this really is about.

I guess you could say I'm a skeptical believer. I like to look into something strange and disprove it to myself, because when I'm proving something to myself it doesn't matter what others think, only evidence matters. I WANT to believe, but I just need some damn evidence.

I'm still hoping Trump is an alien so my beliefs can be confirmed.

Any fracking in the area?

That isn't always the case. Sometimes it has Sulfur compounds with the oil and gases in those deposits that do have some smell. I have had to monitor for the Sulfur that is mostly a nuisance smell.

Methane is what would be released from any buried trash and even plastics and would smell like whatever it is composed of.

I agree that methane is more than likely the culprit in this case.

Indeed I’m actually headed up around Mountain Home to look at some property 120-240 acres depending on whether I get both parcels but I think me and my bro are each gonna buy one of the plots. Gonna have to consider going back into the hills my family out here came from, especially ironic considering the last name of that side of the familia lol.

I will move my comment from the other thread,
I think it may be some kind of acid. Aqua Regia could perhaps do this if enough was used.
The fumes would have been deadly though.

Kinda an odd place to have such chemicals.

Why would someone use such there?

Whose gold were they melting?

Would that surname be "Clampett" by any chance? And maybe there's an Uncle Jed in there somewhere?
