A volcano in Indonesia erupted Saturday, killing at least seven people and severely burning two more.
Mount Sinabung erupted just before 5 p.m. local time on the island of Sumatra, throwing burning hot clouds of ash and rock as high as 2 miles into the air. That pyroclastic flow then descended onto the area nearby.
The volcano had been dormant for centuries until it blew in 2010. Since then, it's been highly active, and the government declared a danger zone around the mountain.
