    KILAUEU VOLCANO, HI (CBS) -- Check out this amazing video from Hawaii's Big Island.

    You're looking at red hot lava spewing out of the Kilauea Volcano.

    You can see it's sparking small fires and consuming trees as it moves down this incline.

    The U.S. Geological Survey website reports the lava is flowing straight down into an abandoned neighborhood.

    The site says that area is closed off and the only way to see it now is from the air.

    Local media reported earlier this week that the lava was nearing the ocean.  But, so far, the USGS says it hasn't reached the water.
