Plenty of explanations after massive hole opens up in Siberia

SIBERIA, Russia (KTRK) -- The internet is blowing up over a giant mysterious hole that appeared in Siberia, Russia.

The hole is more than 260 feet in diameter. There's no word on how deep it is, but it appears to be very deep.

The internet is buzzing with rumors. Some call it the gateway to hell. Others believe aliens drilled a hole.

The most logical explanation is a scientist's theory that gas and ice mixed with salt thousands of years ago and ignited an underground explosion. More scientists are on the way to investigate.

The area is called 'Yamal,' which translates to end of the world.
