VIDEO : Lava Creeps Closer Towards Hawaii Homes

HAWAII (KRON) — After weeks of slow, stop-and-go movement, a river of asphalt-black lava destroyed a wooden shed Tuesday as it crept closer to homes in Pahoa, Hawaii.

The lava flow easily burned down the empty shed at about 7:30 a.m., several hours after entering a residential property in Pahoa Village, said Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira.

At least 50 or 60 structures — including homes and businesses — are in the area likely to be hit.
