A house on La Palma, one of the Canary Islands in Spain, was unlikely to have been scorched by the lava during the devastating eruption.
A picture shows that the house narrowly escaped the lava devastation of the Cumbre Vieja volcano, which erupted on Sunday.
Some Spaniards tweeted to describe it as "la Casa Milagro" or "the wonder house".

The Danish couple who own the house found, according to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, that they had survived the devastation thanks to the picture shared on social media.
Others weren't so lucky. Footage, like the one in the tweets below, showed the slowly flowing lava engulfing entire homes and swimming pools as it crawled down the island's hill.
Authorities were prepared for the event and had evacuated about 7,000 people from the area, according to Sky News, and there were no injuries related to the eruption.
The lava first moved down the hill at about 2,300 feet per hour, but has slowed to about 13 feet per hour, according to Sky News.
As the slowdown slowed, the lava flows got higher, reaching heights of up to 50 feet in places, Sky said.
The authorities are now warning that the lava is flowing towards the sea. In advance, shipping in the region was closed in order to avoid toxic gases that could arise when the lava hit the sea, announced the German broadcasting network Deutsche Welle.
