Mexicos Colima or Fire volcano erupted once again on 1 November, as its period of activity rolls on. There were five explosions between 8am and noon local time, and ash from the volcano reached 1,500 metres into the sky.

Located in the southwestern Mexican state of Colima, the Fire volcano has been exhibiting continuous activity since 9 July. Over several months, nearby villages have been blanketed with thick coats of ash, leading to evacuations.

The eruption on Sunday morning required no such evacuation. But officials were releasing warnings to locals to cover their faces and to be careful before drinking water.

The volcano, officially known as Colima, was previously active in January and February of 2015 and is part of the Pacifics Ring of Fire.

Mexico has more than 3,000 volcanos, but only 14 are considered active. Major eruptions in Mexican history have included the Paricutin volcano in Michoacan in 1953, the Tacana volcano in Chiapas in 1982, and the Colima volcano in 1986.
