Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira says officials continue to monitor the lava for any changes in behavior and flow activity.

The slow-moving lava crossed a country road in Pahoa last month. Since then, the lava has burned down a vacant house and a garden shed. The molten rock also has burned tires, some metal materials and vegetation in its path.

Kilauea volcano continues to erupt at its summit. The volcano has been erupting continuously for more than 31 years.
