Please tell me which active volcano on the Earth has got the largest fire lake (or moving (long) magma) like them below?

And also, which fire lake has got the highest temperature? Briefly, I am looking for the largest and hottest fire lakes/places on the Earth

Eagle, you may want to take advice from Yoda: "No try, only or do not." :-)

I googled Lava Lake, the fifth link ought to get you on your way:

Currently, there are only five lava lakes in the world: Erta Ale in Ethiopia, Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kilauea in Haiwaii, Mount Erebus in Antarctica and Villarrica in Chile.

The wikipedia article mentions "Nyiragongo lava lake has usually been the largest one (and the most voluminous) in recent history -the depth/size of lava lakes can vary considerably with time- . . . "

Tungurahua (Ecuador) may have had a lava lake during a recent eruption. Merapi (Indonesia) also probably had a lava lake.
