After the end of its recent paroxysm on 4 August, the volcano has quieted down a lot. INSIVUMEH reports only white steaming and that the lava flows are cooling and not producing avalanches.
No explosions are mentioned although the seismic signal suggests that some minor activity might be going on.

Fuego volcano's activity has increased. Seismic recordings monitor rising tremor and there are (for now weak) constant explosions ejecting ash to 900 meters above the crater forming plumes of 8 kilometers in two directions ,one south and one to the southwest. This activity generates constant moderate degassing sounds, audible to 10 kilometers distance. Reports of OVFGO Volcano Observatory indicate incandescent material being ejected to 100 m height. ...
