By Frokor CC3

Today there are a small number of such natural sources of gas combustion in the world, most of them in Azerbaijan. The natural eternal fire of Yanar Dagh is caused by the leakage of combustible natural gas from a large field near the Absheron peninsula. Apparently the ignition of this fire occurred in ancient times. It is reported by Marco Polo. These fires are most visible in the twilight.
