Guatemala’s Pacaya Volcano continues "high levels" of activity with strong eruptions, ash clouds, and rivers of lava spewing out.
People have flocked to the site to enjoy weird and unusual activities around it. Vistors roasted marshmallows over volcano lava.
While getting close to the lava is dangerous enough, the people ignored that volcano vents emit chemical compounds like sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide, which would alter the taste of a sugary sweet marshmallow.
The 2,500-meter volcano that lies 25 kilometres to the south of Guatemala City has been erupting for 50 days, damaging plantations in the path of the lava.
The country’s civil protection body has asked authorities to prohibit people from approaching either the crater or the lava flows due to the risk of falling debris.
Despite the spectacular eruptions, villagers living near the volcano have chosen to stay at home, ignoring an evacuation request.
Pacaya has been a popular location for tourism with its constant activity.
