Rescuers hit out at Hawaii residents who won't evacuate Kilauea as terrifying video shows wall of lava consuming properties

Hawaii County officials are knocking on doors on several streets in the Leilani Estates subdivision alerting residents to flee fast-moving lava from Kilauea volcano.

Evacuation orders were issued Monday evening for anyone in the area east of Pomaikai Street to avoid being isolated by the flow.

'Kind of disturbingly, some people just refused to leave,' said Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Talmadge Magno. 'We had one gentleman that had to be kind of rescued. His only way out was through his back door and through the forest.'
