By the time Roshi appears, he is already unconscious and captured by Akatsuki. He dies not too long after when they extract his beast. The fight between Roshi and Kisame was never shown, so it's only known from the databooks that he used Lava techniques at all.

In the beginning of episode 121 a lava jutsu is seen, but some sites removed it.
