"Is this a possibility, or am I venturing too way out there with this?"

Some 4300 years ago, the LORD judged the world with a flood, involving the heavens and the earth.
i.e. where water rained down from heaven, and came up from under the earth.
However, the next judgement of the world will also involve the heavens and the earth, but then it will be with fire:

II Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

  4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

  5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

  6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

  7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

As children, we learned of the water that came down from heaven, and rained upon the earth.
Later, when we read the Bible for ourselves, we also saw that there was water that came up from the fountains of the deep.

Genesis 7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

  11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Genesis 8:2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

The judgment of fire will be similar, as there will be the fire of the heavens:

II Peter 3:12b  wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,

And also the fire of the earth:

II Peter 3:10d  the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

What I was wondering, in addition to fire coming down from above, will the earth open up fountains of crude oil upon the land?
With crude oil pouring out upon the land, with natural gas vents in the same areas, everything could easily catch fire everywhere?
Maybe it could start as a full scale nuke first strike by China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, and others, with cities and strategic areas, instantly burned up;
But then, if the LORD continues the judgment, by raining down fire and brimstone, while crude oil pours out all over, and maybe even volcanoes erupting;
An entire nation, like the US, could be totally consumed with fire in a very short period of time.

Is this a possibility, or am I venturing too way out there with this?
