PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) -Some Hawaii residents living near the path of a slowly-moving lava flow already have left town, and others are getting ready to leave.

The lava from the Kilauea volcano is just 370 yards from the main road in the town of Pahoa, on the Big Island.

The lava already has entered private property and is burning tires and other materials.

Authorities have told downwind residents with respiratory problems to stay indoors.
