Chile and Argentina have ordered a red alert and evacuation of around 3,000 people living near the Copahue volcano located between their shared border.
Last December, Chile also issued a red alert after the volcano started spewing ash and gas, resulting in a cloud of ash almost a mile (1.5 kms) high in the Biobio region.
Copahue is one of the most active volcanoes in the region.
Chilean Interior Minister Andres Chadwick said: "This doesn't necessarily mean the volcano will start erupting.
"But according to the Sernageomin (National Geological and Mining Service), the volcano is now in a process that could culminate in an eruption, for that reason we've issued a red alert and the evacuation."
