Fort McMurray under Siege by Giant Wildfire   Leave a comment

High winds and hot temperatures may worsen a huge wildfire that has forced the entire population of a Canadian city to be evacuated, officials say.

Some 80,000 people in Fort McMurray, in Alberta province, fled the flames but no injuries have been reported.

Fires in the city’s buildings were extinguished overnight but some districts were badly hit and the situation may deteriorate at any time.

Large areas of Alberta and Saskatchewan are under extreme fire risk.
