Welcome to The borough of Laurel Run


Laurel Run is a borough in Luzerne CountyPennsylvaniaUnited States. The population was 500 at the 2010 census.

Laurel Run is the site of the Laurel Run mine fire, which started in the Red Ash mine in 1915, and burned underground until 1973. The mine was excavated to remove the fire and filled in. Approximately 166 homes were razed and relocated along with two grocery stores, a church, a school and a lumberyard through a program administered by the Appalachian Regional Commission.
