Guatemala's Fuego volcano is at it again, erupting early on 30 November and spewing lava into the night sky. The volcano – about 29 miles south west of Guatemala City – has had at least three large lava flows reported in recent days. David de Leon of Guatemala's emergency agency Conred is monitoring the situation closely.

"The Fuego volcano is in a new phase of eruption. This year it has erupted more than 10 times, of those that have been registered before. They have created ash columns 4,800m above sea level and we are also talking about reports of fine particles of ash that are falling in the surrounding communities," De Leon said.

So far, officials have said residents have no need to evacuate, but they will remain on watch, just in case Central America's most active volcano increases in liveliness.
