The Mount Fagradalsfjall volcano which has been dormant for 6,000 years in Iceland has suddenly become active after a series of earthquakes in the region. The site of the volcano is the Reykjanes Peninsula and close to the Keflavik International Airport in southwest Iceland. The last time any volcanic activity occurred in the region was 781 years ago, CBS News reports.

A stream of lava can be seen oozing out of the ground and brightening the black night for more than 20 miles away. The volcanic eruption is almost 15 miles south of Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik and the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) has warned people to keep indoors to prevent the inhalation of harmful gases from the site.
