Volcano

Plot hole: When they are trying to find a way to stop the lava from going in to the museum, Tommy Lee Jones has an idea to push a bus up against the museum to divert the lava. The plan works but the lava does not melt the bus like it melted Tommy Lee Jones' car or the fire truck. Even though the bus melts later in the movie, it doesn't melt it instantly like it did with the fire truck.

Factual error: The firemen would have used the "jaws of life" to get the fireman out instead of the fireman jumping up on the side of the firetruck and crawling through the window. The driver was trapped and could not have been rescued without them.
