June 08, 2005|From Reuters

MEXICO CITY — Forty-five people were evacuated from a hamlet near western Mexico's rumbling "Fire Volcano," which has spewed ashes almost three miles into the air, civil protection officials said Tuesday.

The villagers were taken to a temporary shelter, civil protection officials said by telephone.

The evacuations in the settlement of Juan Barragan came after an eruption Monday night. The mountain, also known as the Colima volcano, had one of its fiercest eruption in more than 15 years Sunday, authorities said.
