1-generalviewoAn explosion on western Mexico’s Volcano of Fire blew out a giant column of ash on Friday that rained down on some towns in two states.  The ash cloud rose five kilometers (three miles) above the volcano in the state of Colima, but it did not pose an immediate threat to the population, the interior ministry said in a statement. The volcano spewed hot, dry rock and gases two kilometers from the crater. The ash cloud traveled a distance of 25 kilometers, and a “light ash fall” was reported in the town of Queseria, Colima, and the towns of Tonila and Zapotiltic in the neighboring state of Jalisco, the statement said.
