Guatemala volcano kills at least 6, covers villages in ash

"It's a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village".

Six people are dead and 20 have been injured after Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupted on Sunday.

The Volcan del Fuego, roughly 27 miles from Guatemala City, shot ash almost four miles into the sky.

Ash was falling on the Guatemala City area as well as the departments of Sacatepequez, Chimaltenango and Escuintla, which are in south-central Guatemala around the volcano.

Fuego volcano, whose name means "fire" in English, spewed an 8-kilometer (5-mile) stream of red hot lava and belched a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions.

Mr Cabañas later said the dead included a member of his agency's staff.

A woman covered in ash said lava poured through fields and she feared more had died.

Guatemala's President Jimmy Morales said a national emergency is underway. Streets and houses were covered in the colonial town of Antigua, a popular tourist destination.

Photos shared on social media show huge plumes of smoke rising into the sky.

Around four hours after the explosion lava flows reaching temperatures of about 1,300degrees Fahrenheit, cascaded down the mountain, according to ABC.

The volcano spewed black smoke and ash into the sky, prompting the evacuation of some 100 people and forcing the capital's La Aurora worldwide airport to shut down its only runway.

Explosions are still coming from the volcano, said Eddy Sánchez, director of the National Institute for Seismology, Vulcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology of Guatemala known as INSIVUMEH.

It's the second time this year it has erupted.
