Volcano of Fire

Two children evacuated from Morelia community, near the Volcan de Fuego, or Volcano of Fire, receiving bread distributed by volunteers at shelter in Santa Lucia Cotzumalguapa, south of Guatemala City, late Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012. The long-simmering volcano exploded with a series of powerful eruptions outside one of Guatemala's most famous tourist attractions on Thursday, hurling thick clouds of ash and spewing rivers of lava down its flanks.
