Villa Rica Volcano is a volcano in Chile. It is located near a popular tourist area south of the capital of Santiago. It is one of South America’s most active volcanoes. It last erupted in 2000.

There was an eruption of lava and ash in the early hours of Tuesday last week. The ash shot up two miles into the sky. This big eruption did not last long, but the volcano remained active.

The eruption injured nobody, but some 3,385 people were evacuated from the area.

Difficult words: lava (hot fluid rock), ash (the soft grey thing which remains after something burns).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
