SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Chile has issued a red alert for the Copahue volcano on the border with Argentina that has become increasingly active.

The nearly 10,000-foot (2,965-meter) volcano sits in the Andes cordillera, straddling the border with Argentina's Neuquen province.

Chile's Interior and Security Minister Andres Chadwick said Monday that the increased activity could lead to an eruption and officials will begin evacuating about 2,000 people in the area soon.
