"It's a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village".
"There are injured, burned and dead people", says National Disaster Coordinator Sergio Cabanas, adding, an undetermined number of people were missing following the violent eruption of Fuego volcano in over four decades.
It is the second time the volcano has erupted this year, setting off loud explosions and spewing ash almost four miles into the sky. Three bodies lay partially buried in ash-colored debris from the volcano, which lies about 27 miles from Guatemala City.
The volcano spewed black smoke and ash into the sky, prompting the evacuation of some 100 people and forcing the capital's La Aurora worldwide airport to shut down its only runway.
"Not everyone escaped, I think they were buried", Consuelo Hernandez said.
Guatemala's airport in the capital city has closed down while many villagers are being evacuated.
Rescue operations were suspended until 5:00 A.M. (1100 GMT) due to unsafe conditions and inclement weather, said Cecilio Chacaj, a spokesman for the municipal firefighters department. "This is an very bad place to be, if you are ever around an erupting volcano like this and you see a cloud moving along the ground towards you, RUN". Another victim was found in the streets of El Rodeo by volunteer firefighters, but the person died in an ambulance.
