Fires have long been recognized as hazards associated with coal mining. Coal mine fire causes economic losses by virtue of loss of coal and coal winning machinery. Environmental problems at surface and underground due to coal mine fire are discussed in terms of production of noxious, toxic gases, global warming and fire damp explosion. Social and health problems due to mine fire are dealt with. An account of modern techniques like water mist technology, remote sensing and infusion of carbon dioxide are also given.
