The lava tube is just a small hole in the ground.  A red glow emanates from the lava tube while occasional puffs of dark smoke billow up from below.

It serves as a trash can, and you can throw stuff in it and it will be gone forever. There is no grace period like normal barrels where you can reach in and get stuff out again.

There is also a chance, when you go to throw something away, that the tube will burn you.

A low rumble passes through the ground below.
You toss your steel needle into the lava tube from a safe distance.
After a short drop a burst of flame issues from the lava tube.
You toss your steel needle into the lava tube.

You carelessly lean too close to the lava tube as you attempt to throw your monir trunk away and a burst of flames catches you squarely.  You realize with alarm that you are on fire!

The flames surrounding you flare up violently... ... 20 points of damage! Nasty burns to right leg. Gonna need lots of butter. You are knocked to the ground! You are stunned for 3 rounds!

The flames around you continue to burn!
