One of South America's most active volcanoes began to spew lava on Tuesday morning.

Smoke and lava was thrown into the air from the volcano Villarrica, in southern Chile. The outbreak started on Tuesday morning and authorities are on high alert. Until now, 3500 people have been evacuated from their homes.

The volcano, which is 2,847 meters above sea level is located by the city Pucon with its 22,000 inhabitants.

Many tourists visit the city for outdoor activities such as fishing, horseback riding and walks near the volcano. Among the evacuees there are many tourists.

The last major eruption of the volcano was in 1984, officials said.

Authorities are afraid that large snowmelting in the area will lead to landslides and avalanches near the volcano.
