A video is going viral on social media in which molten red coloured liquid, surrounded by black solid material can be seen which resembles lava from a volcano.
The caption of the video read- “पृथ्वीची विनाशाकडे वाटचाल ….सजीव सृष्टीसाठी धोक्याची घंटा
बीड जिल्यातील पहिलीच घटना
सिरसाळा येथे आज ज्वालामुखी निघाला… डॉ.नावंदर साहेब हॉस्पिटल मागे शिवाजी नगर आता तरी सावध व्हा…झाडे लावा झाडे जगवा …जीवन वाचवा”

When NewsMobile team checked the claim, we found that the claim is FAKE.
On putting a screengrab of the video through Reverse Image Search, we came across an article by newswire Press Trust of India (PTI) which was published on April 15, 2019.
The incident took place at Sirsala village, Parali Vaijnath taluka of the Beed district.
According to the article a dark, bitumen-like substance found boiling on the soil in a village in Beed district of Maharashtra triggered panic of volcanic lava among the local residents.
However, it later turned out to be rocks, which had melted after coming in contact with a high tension power cable that had fallen to the ground.
Hence, the claim is fake and the video shouldn’t be shared with the claim as it can trigger panic among people.
