As the dry hot weather continues, wildfires rage on and engulf the city of Fort McMurray.
Today, an area with approximately 80,000 people was issued a mandatory evacuation order causing major gridlock on the main highways exiting Fort McMurray.
This is the largest fire-related evacuation in Alberta’s history.
On social media, residents have been documenting the devastation.
