Lost volcano photos found

An undeveloped roll of film from 33 years ago with never-before-seen photos of Mount Saint Helens days before it erupted just resurfaced at The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Washington.

The pictures are part of Northwest history and were taken before Columbian photographer Reid Blackburn died in the May 1980 eruption.

Blackburn went up in an airplane to capture the images of the smoldering cauldron.

A week later, Blackburn was killed in his vehicle while covering the eruption.
