Very worrying — a bus beached in the middle of the primary evacuation routes for seven villages to South and West of Fuego volcano, Guatemala.

According to the agency, the volcano spewed out a column of ash to a height of 4.8 kilometers (3 miles) after which pyroclastic flow poured from the volcano.
