Intermittent explosions took place at Fuego during a two-year-long period beginning in September 1977. Here an ash plume is rising above the summit of Fuego on 11 February 1978. This view is from the WSW, with Acatenango to the left and Agua in the background in 1978. The height of the eruption plume can be compared to the roughly 700 m vertical distance between the summit of Acatenango and the saddle between it and Fuego.
