Indeed, it's gonna be a rough night for the selfless folks on the front lines up there. Dry as a tinderbox throughout the Province. Desperately need some rain!

I see there are a number of TT's being pulled out. Hope they got their FW tanks filled before they left.

Thoughts with those affected.

We had a fire less than 1/2 mile from our house last week, complete with helicopters, water bombers and ground crews. It's crazy how dry it is, very little rain after a low snow year. Going to get worse before it gets better.

Help coming to fight 'nasty, ugly fire' in Fort McMurray - Edmonton - CBC News

But hey, the federal government is "watching the situation". Thanks a bunch.

Reports from friends in the Fort Mac area indicate close to 1000 homes burned. To put this in perspective the official all evacuate order was give at 6:30 yesterday evening.

There was a lady on CBC last that lost her trailer, truck everything she reported due to fire a at a campground.


I wonder of Crazy Joe and Buffalo Air are on site with their water bombers from Yellowknife.

Reports now that 88,000 people evacuated since yesterday at 6 pm, no one injured. A trailer park is leveled in Fort Mac. Some video showing total subdivisions wiped out. Nothing left. Estimated 1900 homes burnt since yesterday evening.
Sickening disaster. Largest one in my memory in Canada.
