Based on observations of satellite imagery, the Washington VAAC
reported that multiple ash "puffs" from Fuego drifted SE on 26
Thursday, Oct 18, 2007
Fuego volcano continues its moderate strombolian activity; INSIVUMEH reported frequent explosions such as on 10 October that produce ash plumes rising to to altitudes of 4-5 km (13,000-16,400 ft) a.s.l. and mostly drifiting N and NW.
The explosions are often accompanied by rumbling noises and jet-engine like sounds. Avalanches of collapsing spatter from the growing cone in the inner crater descend W into the Taniluyá and Santa Teresa ravines.

On 24 August, INSIVUMEH reported that fumarolic plumes from Fuego rose to an altitude of 3.9 km (12,800 ft) a.s.l. and drifted W. A lahar carried tree trunks, branches, and blocks down the Lajas drainage to the SE. A lahar again affected the drainage on 27 August. Explosions on 28 August produced ash plumes that rose to an altitude of 4.1 km (13,500 ft) a.s.l.

Wednesday, Jul 04, 2007
Strombolian activity at Guatemala's Fire Mountain "Fuego" remains high. INSIVUMEH reports exposions of typically 50-100 m height, although sometimes stronger explosions, such as one on on 1 July throw lava to up to 300 m.A new lava flow, about 250 m long, and headed towards the Río Taniluyá river had started on 27 June from the secondary vent. The older flow, mostly active in March-April, originating from the summit crater, continues slowly as well.[more]
Saturday, Jun 16, 2007
Two lava flows are active at Fuego volcano, travelling through the Santa Teresa and Taniluya ravines, 200 and 500 m long. Strong turbine-like noise from degassing at the crater is audible.
