Following an increase in the activity of Fuego , the INSIVUMEH issued a special bulletin (No. 35 / 22.04.2014 ). CONRED triggered an alarm for people living within 35 km.

On 22.04 , the gas plume is accompanied by moderate to heavy explosions and columns of gray ash rising to 4,500 meters, with a wide dispersion NW - SE over 10-12 km . Incandescent blocks are issued at 200 meters above the southwestern part of the crater . Explosions generate shock waves, vibrating roofs and windows in a radius of 15 km. The lava flow is described as " quiet ", but with a probability of pyroclastic flows in the drainages around the volcano , according to Conred .

No evacuation has been decided yet ... the volcano remains under close surveillance
