Lava streams may no longer threaten to burn down his house in the hilly town of Las Manchas, but what greeted him was still daunting - three-metre (10 feet) mounds of black ash piled around his home and in the surrounding streets, forcing him to clamber up hills and pick his way down a filthy staircase to access his home by the back door. Jeronimo kept faith that his home - which was built by his grandparents and where he was born - was not among the around 3,000 buildings that were destroyed by the rivers of molten rock.
