A volcano has erupted on the Sicilian island of Stromboli, killing a hiker and reportedly sending tourists fleeing into the sea.

The person, believed to be a tourist, was killed by falling stones during a walk, a rescue service official told Reuters.

The unexpected eruption started fires on the western side of the small Mediterranean island and sent plumes of grey smoke into the air.

The navy has been deployed for a possible mass evacuation, with 70 people already evacuated.

Stromboli is one of the longest continuously active volcanoes in the world and has been erupting for about 2,000 years.
