Mexican volcano known as Fire volcano has erupted
A huge grey column of smoke is billowing from crater of the 12,540-foot volcano in the western state of Colima. The "Fire Volcano" is located in a sparsely populated area about 300 miles from the Mexican capital.
Local authorities had expected the eruption as the volcano has been in an active phase recently, with small eruptions daily. The last major explosion of the Volcano of Fire was in 1913, but it has erupted intermittently in the last decade.
