Guatemala's Volcan de Fuego erupts

There are two major active volcanoes in the Sacatepéquez department of Guatemala, and one of them is very active today: Volcán de Fuego, or "the fire volcano" (as contrasted with its adjacent twin, Volcán de Agua, or "the water volcano"). The last time this volcano erupted was in 2011. Mashable gathered some "citizen"-published photos and videos, here's a roundup of pics at Prensa Libre, and here's an AP item. Many evacuations, which is routine whenever the volcano wakes up; no casualties at this time.
