HILO, Hawaii (AP) - A pair of brothers on Hawaii's Big Island are selling lava tee shirts they made so they could sell them out of their truck if their auto parts store burned down.

The shirt depicts lava flowing down Pahoa Village Road between quaint downtown storefronts.

A boy rides a surfboard on the lava's leading edge, and the Hawaiian volcano goddess Pele stretches her arms above.

The shirt reads "2014 Go With the Flow Tour."

Brady and Myke Metcalf say the wanted to evoke a rock concert shirt. Brady sketched the design after a few beers and margaritas.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports the duo sold 500 so far to buyers as far flung as Germany, Spain, Texas and Utah.

The brothers say the shirt shows that the community is still here.
