Rescue workers struggle as ‘fire’ volcano spews hot mud flow – AOL News

EL RODEO, June 4 (Reuters) – Rescue workers struggled in perilous conditions to find bodies under rivers of ash and mud that swept down from Guatemala’s Fuego volcano on Monday, as the number of fatalities from an eruption that partially buried buildings rose to 38.

Structures and trees at the base of the Fuego volcano were completely coated in brown and gray. A policeman wearing a blue surgical mask stumbled in the muck as he ran from a cloud of ash pouring down the slope behind him, Reuters photos showed.
