Wildfire in Canada forces thousands to evacuate

STORY: :: A large wildfire is seen approaching a western Canada oil town, forcing thousands to evacuate:: May 14, 2024:: Fort McMurray, Canada:: Josee St-Onge/Alberta Wildfire Information Officer“Wildfire MWF017 is still out of control and its last known size was 9602 hectares, but we know that it has grown since the size estimate was taken. The wildfire grew significantly to the northeast yesterday and continues to grow in that direction today. The wind is pushing it towards the town of Fort McMurray.”“Fire activity is increasing on the northeastern edge of the wildfire driven by winds from the southwest. We're seeing extreme fire behavior. Smoke columns are developing and the skies are covered in smoke. Firefighters have been pulled from the fire line for safety reasons. We continue to work on this wildfire with aerial support. Helicopters and air tankers are dropping water and retardant on the active edges of the fire.”The fire, fueled by tinder dry conditions and high winds, has been threatening the city in the western province of Alberta since last week. It is now about 8 miles away to the south west.
