I'm guessing that the explosion was done by having a sphere with an animated displacement map and a fire texture, then you just expand it?
It looked like that's how it was done...

Yeah Ben, the lava-falls were done with an opacity map, showing lava through the rock.
I did try to animate a rock falling into the lava, looked kinda cool but nowhere near realistic. I have another animated version of the lava rippling a bit which looks okay.
