At least 15 killed after volcano eruption on Indonesian island

Indonesia (KTNV) -- The death toll continues to rise after a volcano eruption on an Indonesian island.

So far, authorities are reporting that 15 people have died in North Sumatra.

Plumes of ash spewed more than a mile into the sky.

Most of the victims died in a village less than 3 kilometers from the peak of Mount Sinabung.

Toxic clouds of hot ash are hampering the search for survivors.
