As blocks of lava tumbled down the Cumbre Vieja volcano — some as big as a house — red-hot lava streams hardened and caked over the village of La Laguna in Los Llanos de Aridane on Thursday on Spain’s La Palma island.
Residents of La Laguna were evacuated Wednesday evening as the lava stream became dangerously close.

More than 6,000 people have had to leave their homes.
