Argentine makes bricks of ashes from Chilean volcano

Help

After weeks of enduring the ash brought on by Chile's Puyehue volcano, one Argentine woman has decided to transform the grey sediment into something useful.

Maria Irma Mansilla used the sediment and sand spewed by the volcano to create bricks.

She hopes she and her neighbours will be able to produce them on a large scale to build homes for the poor.
