You can still get into the town via 61... It's just that they closed a section of it off because of the warped, cracked, falling through road.
They recently upped their "road block" on that section of the road too... As to prohibit people from parking at either side of the closed section. But, you can still park and walk if you wanted. With their new "road block" they took down the infamous "Mine Fire" sign that faced Ashland.
The above link is a great reference.
I think they did arial heat plots of Centralia in the last decade or so, that showed the fire actually heading towards Ashland. Most of the country up in Centralia was all mining towns... So I'm sure there's more than enough under there to keep it burning for quite some time.
