The activity at the volcano has been increasing since a few days ago. The effusion rate has risen significantly.

Fuego's lava flow last night (image: Alex Jones Photography via CONRED / twitter)
Another paroxysm - a peak in activity with lava fountains and lava flows - occurred at the volcano last night, the 10th such event this year. It seems that activity with increasing effusion rate began during the night Sunday-Monday, as the volcano observatory reported a new lava flow on the southern flank the next morning. It was headed towards the Las Lajas and El Jute drainages and had reached 1500 m length by Monday morning. ...more [read all]

Lava flows on Fuego volcano on 10 Oct 15 (INSIVUMEH)
Another paroxysm, the 9th this year, occurred at the volcano during 10-13 Oct. Strongly increased lava effusion and violent strombolian activity produced intermittent lava fountaining up to 300 m high, and re-alimented the two lava flows on the southern and western slopes, which reached 1000 and 1300 m length. ...more
Sun, 11 Oct 2015, 09:33
Activity has calmed down. Explosions have been only of smaller size, but the lava flows on the upper southern and western flanks remained weakly active last evening.
