Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) wrote that Postels reported two strong earthquakes in June, 1826, and Makushin erupted in flames. Grewingk (1850, translated 2003 by Fritz Jaensch) adds a footnote stating that this report "is an error. It was probably meant to mean, 'in smoke.' Characteristic of the Makushin Volcano is that it does not erupt in flames, this according to all other reports, including Cook's (from 1778)."
Litke (1835, translated in 1987) reported that Makushin was smoking on September 1, 1828.
