Conguillio National Park, Chile, January 2, 2008—The Llaima volcano—one of Chile's largest—spews ash and lava during an eruption on Tuesday night.

Located about 528 miles (850 kilometers) south of the capital city of Santiago, the volcano's pyroclastic flow forced air traffic to be diverted to neighboring Argentina.

Rescue workers evacuated 54 tourists and staff from the national park, the news agency Reuters reported.
