15 Jul 11 - A volcanic eruption in central Indonesia has propelled rocks, lava and smoke thousands of feet into the air, a disaster official has confirmed.

Mount Lokon, in northern Sulawesi province, erupted three times within as many hours on Thursday night, triggering forest fires along its western slope.

Though there were no immediate reports of casualties, Indonesian authorities urged the evacuation of around 28,000 people living in the danger zone.

One of the more active of the 129 volcanoes in Indonesia, Mount Lokon last erupted in 1991, killing a Swiss tourist.

In contrast, Mount Merapi in central Java, the country's most active volcano, has killed more than 350 people in a series of violent eruptions starting in late October.
