Naturally flammable river can light itself on fire

Testing a theory he’s heard about this particular river near an Australian fracking site, Jeremy Buckingham held a light barely above the water before part of the river itself exploded and became engulfed in flames. There’s so much gas seeping into the Condamine River from a nearby fracking site that you can even see it bubbling up from the water. Fracking can produce what are called fugitive gasses that travel through rock and ground to escape wherever possible. In this instance, that point of escape is this particular river.
