Etna on fire

After six months smoking in quiet, Mount Etna, Europe's most active, tallest volcano, is at it again. Lava flowed down the side of Mount Etna on the southern Italian island of Sicily near Catania. That one village has been the unfortunate target of Mount Etna's wrath since 122 BC, when an eruption devastated the region.
