Mexico’s most active volcano, the ‘Fire volcano,’ spewed smoke and ash into the night sky on Friday, July 10, prompting the evacuation of a nearby hamlet as lava poured down its flank.

Authorities have taken preventative measures and evacuated residents within a five-kilometre radius of the volcano’s peak after lava was observed coming down its flanks.

The Fire Volcano was most recently active in January and February of 2015 but altogether no civil protection actions have been warranted thus far.
