Back to Pompeii, and remembering what salt is, the earlier quote references Pliny the Younger who was a witness to the event, and the Volcano in question was Vesuvius, the following is an excerpt from a blog site, dealing with Pliny the Younger's account, and touching on much later eruptions that took place in the same volcano of Vesuvius, via a witness in 1794 describing this key detail -

"Lava began to harden, and in many places it is cracking, and cracking of the rapidly rising couples, saturated with sodium chloride, on the edges of a crack was visible in some places a bright flame."

I hope you got that, or am I making things too difficult?

What do we know about the inhabitants of Pompeii, what were they like? Wiki states ->

"The large number of well-preserved frescoes provide information on everyday life and have been a major advance in art history of the ancient world, with the innovation of the Pompeian Styles (First/Second/Third Style). Some aspects of the culture were distinctly erotic, including phallic worship. A large collection of erotic votive objects and frescoes were found at Pompeii."

Now, mandatory warning, viewer discretion is advised, click only if you are "mature" for the "historical art" piece featured in Pompeii frescoes ->

Of course, if it were just normal sexual activities it would be more understandable, but the pompeiians were a particular lot (warning still kept) ->

That should get the idea across hopefully, but back to how the Pompeiians ended up ->

And just as Sodom and Gomorrha, the city of Hercalaneum also was the sister city to Pompeii that was encompassed in the destruction, when excavations were done in the city hundreds of years later, casts were able to be made of some of the victims, capturing the horrifying death they had, available for a witness to us of what happened in those centuries from which we are removed, here is Wiki's comment on that -

"In contrast to Pompeii, where casts resembling the body features of the victims were produced by filling the body imprints in the ash deposit with plaster, the shape of corpses of those killed at Herculaneum could not be preserved, due to the rapid vaporization and replacement of the flesh of the victims by the hot ash (ca. 500 C). A cast of the victims' skeletons unearthed within chamber 10 is on display at the Museum of Anthropology in Naples.

Recent multidisciplinary research on the lethal effects produced by the AD 79 pyroclastic surges in the Vesuvius area definitely showed that at Pompeii and Herculaneum vicinity heat was the main cause of death of people, heretofore supposed to have died by ash suffocation. This study shows that exposure to at least 250 C hot surges even at a distance of 10 kilometres from the vent was sufficient to cause instant death of all residents, even if they were sheltered within buildings."

This is exactly what God forecasted -> 2Peter 2:6

"And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;"

So, this in short, is basic math, if you can put two and two together.
