Description: From McGimsey and others (1995): "On December 27, 1992, U.S. Coast Guard pilots reported an ash cloud to 1200 m above Pyre Peak and extending 24 km north. Intermittent, localized bursts of ash rising 100-200 m and ash accumulation on the south flank were observed on December 30. The vent was confirmed to be a satellite cone located 1.5 km south of Pyre Peak at the north end of a fissure that produced lava fountains in 1977. The activity apparently subsided soon thereafter. No subsequent activity was reported until May 1993."
