German Filmmakers Visit PA For Mine Fire Documentary

A crew from a Berlin-based film production company visited the coal refuse pile fire abatement project at the Pittsburgh International Airport in Allegheny County last week. They are creating a prime-time documentary for German television to be aired in mid-February.
Staff from DEP’s Bureau of Abandoned Mine Reclamation led the filmmakers on a tour of the site, where they were able to see evidence of the pile fire and learn more about how those types of fires are extinguished.
A producer, audio engineer and photographer from Story House Productions shot video of the huge earthmovers as it pushed almost 430,000 cubic yards of earth at the airport's coal pile fire remediation project site.
