Burnt gas eruption, were silent for decades, began in June 2010. On the 200-meter crater Burnt periodically raised clouds of gas and vapor. Seismic stations recorded seismic strengthening of burning, continuous spasmodic volcanic tremor.

According to him, the current state of aviation in Burnt no danger.

For Gorely characteristic explosive (explosive) eruptions, accompanied by powerful steam-gas emissions from the ash and the explosions, magmatic material rises to a height of one and a half miles, and ejection of volcanic bombs up to 10 meters in diameter. Volcanic eruptions usually last a few months.

The absolute height of Burnt — 1.82 kilometers. On top of it there are 11 craters. The greatest time of rest for the entire historical period of 60 years. On average, the volcano erupts every 19 years. Burnt by the eruption that occurred in 1984-86, to Petropavlovsk in Avacha Bay stretched thick black ash plume. The city held a strong ash falls.
