That does look like a strange place to bury garbage.
Not for those people. It is a wonder he did not bury garbage in the house

Ok my family were skyping with some relatives who live in the capital. They had not heard about it but suggested it might have something to do with the hot baths in the area. So it seems there is geo thermal activity in the area. How hot baths would relate to burning earth is beyond me. If there is lava that close to the surface it defies everything we think we know about the earth. I'll look into this more when I get home.
Hot springs There are the seven hot springs of Kanniya (Kal = stone; niya = land), on the road to Trincomalee. A high wall bounds the rectangular enclosure which includes all seven springs. Each is in turn enclosed by a dwarf wall to form a well. The water is warm, the temperature of each spring being slightly different. The use of the springs for bathing is controlled by the neighbouring Mari Amman Kovil, who holds the lease of the wells

Is this the same country where, a few months ago, they beat a woman to death because they thought she was a witch? Is this the same country where people are still driven away from towns and villages for being demons or possessed? I noticed that the hole he dug is perfect! Perfectly round and evenly deep. Leads me to believe first off, this isn’t his first hole digging experience. Second, the thing must have started to burn after he was done digging. Maybe he hit a gas main? What we will probably find out is that back long ago when the evil white man countries were colonizing the world to try to turn everyone white, they dumped chemicals in the ground there. After years of poisoning the land and atmosphere they left and the indigenous people of the land wanted to go back to reclaim their land but were poisoned instead. This lead them to not being able to drink the water, and they started to use a lot of chick peas in their food and curry because their taste buds have been damaged from the water and chick peas they ate. Also they have an irresistible urge to go visiting so often that their busses can’t hold everyone and they need to put people on top of them.
