Guatemala volcano spews rock, ash

Published:

GUATEMALA CITY -- Guatemala authorities say the Pacaya volcano near Guatemala City has shot plumes of ash and vapor 2.3 miles high, while spewing glowing-hot rock.

The eruption early Sunday is the latest round of activity at the scenic volcano located just 30 miles south of Guatemala City.

Pacaya is one of Guatemala's most active and picturesque volcanos. An eruption in January sent lava flowing down one side of the volcano, leading to evacuations.
