Volcano in Western Mexico spits up ashes

Western Mexico's Volcano of Fire sent a towering column of ash and gas more than a mile into the air Thursday, authorities said. Winds blew a 7,150-foot column of ash toward the west. No communities were affected, said authorities in Jalisco state. The 2 1/2-mile-high volcano sent up twin eruptions in January, triggering several small landslides. The Volcano of Fire, on the border of Jalisco and Colima states, 420 miles west of Mexico City, has erupted repeatedly in recent years.
