Firefighter Video Shows La Palma Lava Edging Towards Town

A flow of lava from the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma had destroyed more than 200 buildings by September 21, local reports said, and was continuing to endanger many more on its way to the sea.

Around 6,000 people were evacuated, Telecinco reported, as the lava neared the town of Todoque.
