Guatemala's Fuego volcano is at it again, erupting early Monday spewing lava into the night sky. The volcano -- about 40 kilometers southwest of Guatemala City - has had at least three large laval flows reported in recent days. David de Leon of Guatemala's emergency agency CONRED is monitoring the situation closely. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) CONRED SPOKESPERSON, DAVID DE LEON, SAYING: "The Fuego volcano is in a new phase of eruption. This year it has erupted more than 10 times, of those that have been registered before. They have created ash columns 4,800 meters [15,748 feet] above sea level and we are also talking about reports of fine particles of ash that are falling in the surrounding communities." So far officials say there's no need to evacuate. But they will remain on watch, just in case Central America's most active volcano gets even hotter.
