    2021-4-14 · As coal mining developed in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries severe mine explosions became common. It was soon discovered that the origin of the explosions was the ignition of mixtures of flammable gas or firedamp and air which accumulated in the mines. Firedamp is essentially methane liberated from coal when pressure is released.
