#AceNewsReport – Oct.25: Harrowing footage below has been captured the moment a house owned by a British couple is swallowed up under a river of red-hot lava on a volcanic island.
#AceDailyNews says according to MailOnline Report: Approximately 6,000 people have been evacuated from their homes on the island out of a population of some 83,000 …
Terrifying moment La Palma house is swamped with 1075C molten lava which brings it tumbling down …….Just 29 minutes elapsed from the moment the stream of molten rock reached the property’s garden and brought the three-storey villa, on the Spanish island of La Palma, crashing to the ground.
Spanish news website NIUS reported the house belonged to a British couple who ‘only visit the island during the winter’.
In the footage, a man can be heard screaming: ‘The wall is beginning to break’ in Spanish, as the river of molten rock can be seen creeping closer towards the property.
Cracks first started appearing along the outer walls of their home after just 14 minutes, with waves of 1967F (1075C) lava streaming out onto the road in Los Llanos de Aridane and eventually bringing the entire house toppling down.
The lava engulfed a palm tree on the way, bringing the house down amid a plume of white smoke at 8.15pm local time exactly 29 minutes after it destroyed the wall ringing the three-storey villa.
Just the top of the house remained as the rest of the property was quickly destroyed amid the fiery inferno that first began when the Spanish island’s Cumbre Vieja volcano first erupted more than a month ago.
Since September 19, more than 2,000 buildings, and 1,300 homes, have been lost due to the eruption as locals warn of an impending aid crisis striking at the heart of their community.

Footage shows homes being devoured by river of lava in La Palma
On Thursday, it emerged four Brits had been identified by police for breaching checkpoints near the La Palma volcano to take selfie pics they posted on social media.
Officials said the muscled men, who showed off their biceps as they grinned in front of lava in shorts and T-shirts, could face prosecution for a crime of disobedience.
One of the group of four identified locally as a culprit posted a photo of himself sweating near the burning lava alongside a message boasting: ‘We had to cover to sneak round the army and police.
‘It was a full SAS mission with roadblocks, search points and animals to dog in pitch black.’
In another message he added: ‘Took a plane, a rental car, a ferry, and a five hour night hike around the army’s roadblocks but we f***** did it. Once in a lifetime s***.’
The footage was revealed as as mother Nikki Batley, 46, originally from Essex, fled her house in the town of Todoque in La Palma with her 11-year-old son John when a series of earthquakes triggered an eruption on the Cumbre Vieja ridge.
Like many others on the islands, Mr Batley said the family have no insurance and will be forced to start again ‘from zero’ if their house is consumed.
Describing the moment the volcano erupted last month, she said: ‘I honestly have never in my entire life felt so terrified.
‘When the mouth of the volcano opened, it is literally directly above us…
‘My partner immediately called saying, it’s exploded, it’s right above where you are, get out now. I had to get my mother-in-law, keep her calm, get my dog and my son and we legged it.’
Ms Batley – a musician and English teacher – has lived on the island since 1998 after moving there from her hometown of Harlow.
She met husband Pedro – a chef – 15 years ago, and the couple live with his mother in the house that she grew up in.
The 81-year-old woman was at home on the day of the eruption, with Ms Batley saying she was ‘in such a state’ as she was forced to leave the house behind.
In other developments, a daring mission using nets flown in by drones had been planned by animal activists Leales.org to rescue pets stuck on the volcanic island in the coming days.
