Eternal Fires
The Eternal Fires have been burning near Kirkuk in Iraq since the time of Nebuchanezzar. Until recently women suffering from infertility would spend the night there and in the morning they would throw a handful of sand upon the ground. If a flame appeared they would know that the demon that had occupied their womb had gone. The first oil well in Iraq was sunk here in 1927.
