More than 19,000 people have been displaced by a volcano in Indonesia that has been erupting for months and shot lava into the air nine times overnight.

Mount Sinabung on the western island of Sumatra sent hot rocks and ash 7,000 metres in the air on Monday night and this morning.

Police and soldiers were patrolling the danger zone to evacuate people who have chosen to stay in their homes.

Mount Sinabung -- one of dozens of active volcanoes in Indonesia which straddles major tectonic fault lines, known as the Ring of Fire -- erupted in September for the first time since 2010 and has been rumbling ever since.
