While drilling in 1971, geologists accidentally found an underground cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of about 50-100 meters.
To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided to burn the gas. Geologists had hoped the fire would go out in a few days but it has been burning ever since. Locals have named the cavern The Door to Hell.
“Members of the Canadian Army’s 12 Field Squadron 1 Combat Engineer Regiment take cover as they set off explosives where a cave is thought to be. Intelligence suggested that the cave — sealed earlier by a JDAM [Joint Direct Attack Munition, or “smart”] bomb dropped by the U.S. military — might have been Osama Bin Laden’s last hiding place. The search for Bin Laden in Tora Bora came up empty, of course, but being there helped me understand just how difficult it would be to track him. The mountains are huge, and the valleys are vast.” - Joe Raedle, Getty Images photographer

My favorite thing about Southland is how it shows that police officers come in both economy and travel sizes.
