The Fires of Hell Win This Round

The Saleaula Lava Fields are from an eruption of Mt Matavanu on the island of Savai'i from 1905 to 1911. It was a slow moving lava flow that destroyed the village oSaleaula. Here are the ruins of a church where the lava entered through the windows and stopped when it got to the other side. The church was fully destroyed other than the huge stone walls used in construction.
