The Volcan del Fuego burst into eruption Sunday, hurling ash 14,700 feet (4,500 meters) above sea level and sending flows of pyroclastic materials down its flanks into nearby towns. "When the lava was already here they passed by in their pickup trucks telling us to leave, but the cars did not stop to pick up the people", Rafael Letran, a resident of El Rodeo, told the AP. Conred disaster agency of Guatemala's general secretary, Sergio Cabanas said in a statement given on radio that, "It's a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village".

CONRED, the government agency for natural disasters, says that "tourists should not attempt to hike the volcano". He added that 3,100 people had evacuated the area so far.

Disaster agency spokesman David de Leon said late Sunday the bodies were found in the community of San Miguel Los Lotes.

Search and rescue operations had suspended due to low light and risky conditions, but were resumed early on Monday morning. El Periódico newspaper reported that lava wasn't initially expected to hit homes, but the lava flow quickly changed direction on a deadly path with nearby residents' homes and farms.

"We were at a party, celebrating the birth of a baby, when one of the neighbours shouted at us to come out and see the lava that was coming", Ms Lopez recalled.

Ash fell on the Guatemala City area as well as the departments of Sacatepequez, Chimaltenango and Escuintla.

In the meantime, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales has declared three days of national mourning, according to the BBC.

City workers sweep volcanic ash in Guatemala City.

Fuego volcano, located about 50 kilometers west of the capital of Guatemala City, exploded around noon local time, and lava began flowing down in the afternoon.

Wounded and traumatised survivors of the Fuego volcanic eruption in Guatemala are being rushed to hospital by the Red Cross, as urgent work continues to evacuate communities from the danger zone.

"We saw the lava was pouring through the corn fields, and we ran toward a hill".

"The new eruption has generated a fast-moving current of hot gas and volcanic matter in the direction of the city", the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala said in an alert.

Guatemalan authorities have increased the confirmed death toll from the eruption of the Volcano of Fire to 69 as officials suspended the search until dawn on Tuesday. Inside the flow temperatures can vary from 200 to 700 degrees Celsius, offering little chance of escape to people in their way.

Explosions are still coming from the volcano, said Eddy Sanchez, director of the National Institute of Seismology, Volcanology, Meteorology and Hydrology.

The huge plumes of smoke that could be seen from various parts of the country and the ash that rained down in four of Guatemala's departments caused some alarm among residents.
