Tephra deposits from periodic larger eruptions of Pacaya coat a roof on Cerro Chino. A major eruption on 7 June 1995 caused the WNW side of Pacaya's crater to collapse, producing debris that slammed into the caldera wall at Cerro Chino, 1 km NW of the summit. A secondary hot cloud swept over Cerro Chino, destroyed a radio antenna, and affected houses within 2 km of the active vent.
