AHHHHH, OH NO THE UNDERGROUND RADIOACTIVE FIRE MADE IT TO THE SURFACE
This all started in the 1950's, during and after WWII when St.Louis was a hub for the production of uranium and dynamite.
The production of these materials left a lot of toxic and radioactive
We were not yet aware of the complete dangers of radioactivity, so we dumper it in an old quarry, now known as the West Lake Landfill
Today, there is an underground fire burning underground right now, uncontained and fueled by the radioactive waste. We now wait for the inevitable, the fire will reach the surface someday soon, raining radiation down upon the St.Louis Metro area, causing irreversible health issues for the 3,000,000 of us that live here
