Mexico's Colima volcano,

Mexico's Colima volcano, also known as the 'fire volcano', has erupted again.
Mexico's Colima or "Fire" Volcano spewed a large column of gas and ash high into a blue sky on Saturday (January 16). The ash cloud reportedly shot more than 2,500 meters (8,200 feet) into the air.

The explosion at the volcanic crater was registered at 3:42 p.m. local time (21:42 GMT). Located in the southwestern Mexican state of Colima, the Fire Volcano has been bursting to life since July 9 last year including three eruptions on New Year's Eve.

The Fire Volcano, officially known as the Colima Volcano, is part of the Pacific's Ring of Fire. Mexico contains over 3,000 volcanoes, but only 14 are considered active. Major eruptions in Mexican history have included the 1953 eruption of the Paricutin Volcano in Michoacan, the 1982 eruption of Tacana Volcano in Chiapas and the 1986 eruption of the Colima Volcano.
