The Living Fire is a natural phenomenon. It is explained by the existence of natural gas which escapes through the crust and in contact with the sun’s heat, it is set alight. On these lands, these flames flickering in the wind can be seen by everyone. Sometimes, they are mighty tall and impressive and other times, they barely flicker, depending on the natural gas pressure inside the Earth’s crust and the weather. Other times, they disappear.
During heavy rainfalls, one can see the water sizzling on the places where the gas comes out. All this is happening on a very small area, the size of a room, of 25 square meters.
In a village, some people built a well. Its waters were so cold and refreshing that one sip would cure you of any disease. Those lands, however, were roamed by a terrible beast. This legendary creature, with several heads had big, red eyes that would freeze the very core of you. It would breathe out fire through his nostrils that would burn to ashes the weak, human bodies.
A brave man set off to defeat this terrible beast and rode on his horse to fight the creature. Their fight happened near the well with clear, fresh waters. They fought tirelessly for two days and two nights, only stopping to drink from the magic well. The brave man eventually won having pushed the beast further towards the mountain where he cut off its heads which were spitting fire everywhere.
It is for this reason, that the place where the beast died, his nostrils are still breathing out fire from under the ground to scare off the locals and show its mighty powers.
