Fuego, one of Central America's most active volcanoes, is one of three large stratovolcanoes overlooking Guatemala's former capital, Antigua. It typically has strombolian activity and sometimes phases of intense lava fountaining, producing tall ash plumes and dangerous pyroclastic flows.

The latest paroxysm (the 6th in 2017 so far) ended in the afternoon of 11 July after having lasted 31 hours. During the peak phase, pulsating lava fountaining generated a tall ash plume and fed multiple lava flows that descended the flanks of the volcano. [more]
