QUITO, Ecuador -- A volcanic eruption in Ecuador's Andes mountains killed at least one person and left more than 60 others missing, the mayor of a village on the volcano's slope said Thursday.

One man's body was recovered after the overnight eruption of lava from Tungurahua, in the country's high Andes, Penipe Mayor Juan Salazar said.

"There are another four who we believe are caught under the rubble," Salazar told Channel 4 television. "There are 60 other people who are on the high flanks of the volcano whom we could not get to this morning."

It was the first fatality reported from a Tungurahua eruption since the volcano rumbled back to life in 1999 after staying dormant for eight decades.
