USGS volcanologist Dr. Harry Dalton and his partner-turned-fiancée Marianne attempt to escape an ongoing eruption in Colombia. As they venture out, a piece of debris pierces through the roof of the truck, killing Marianne. Four years later, Harry is assigned by his superior Dr. Paul Dreyfus to investigate seismic activity near the town of Dante’s Peak, Washington, a town that borders a dormant stratovolcano. Harry arrives and meets with Mayor Rachel Wando along with her children Graham and Lauren. Rachel offers to take Harry with them as they see her former mother-in-law Ruth, an elderly hermit who lives near the lake at the base of the volcano. While exploring, they find dead trees, dead squirrels, and two people boiled to death in a hot spring. Harry instructs Paul to bring a USGS team to monitor the volcano, but their initial survey finds no indications of volcanic activity. Paul advises against Harry putting the town on false alarm. Still, Harry tries to convince Rachel to prepare for a disaster, while developing a relationship with her and the children.

Days go by showing no signs of any threat or activity. One day, Harry and his co-worker Terry examine the summit’s crater until a rock slide traps Terry, causing him to suffer a broken leg. Both men are escorted away by a helicopter. Paul relents that such danger is imminent and the USGS team begins preparing to leave. When Harry goes to say goodbye to Rachel, they reveal that the town’s water supply has been contaminated with sulfur dioxide. The next morning, seismic readings and gas levels rise dramatically. Finally convinced that the volcano will erupt, and with the National Guard unavailable until the next day, Paul gives Harry permission to put the town on alert.
