Vesuvius Burning at Night

IMG_3815The fires continued this morning spreading a heavy layer of smoke throughout the region.

This photo was taken last night from our lodging near Massa Lubrense, about 13 miles from the mountain.

We learned that fires on Visuvius occur every several years  and generally  burn for about  week.
