La Palma volcano eruption 2021: 26 Sep - candle-like tall lava fountains

On 26 Sep, the lava fountaining again increased in height. Typically, the principal summit vent produced tall, candle-like roaring jets that rose to up to 1000 m at times. The flank vent remained moderately active and continued to feed the northern lava flow visible in the pictures below from La Laguna.
