Fort Mac is Burning, entire city under evacuation order

Quote:

Dozens of firefighters remained on the scene of an out-of-control wildfire burning near Fort McMurray – officials said the fire was believed to have more than doubled in size since Monday.

Later Tuesday afternoon, officials told CTV News the wildfire was 'beyond resources' - meaning it was considered too dangerous to put fire crews and aircraft between the fire and Fort McMurray.

Starting at about 2 p.m., and continuing throughout the afternoon, officials issued an increasing number of evacuation orders for parts of Fort McMurray.
Just before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday – officials confirmed all Fort McMurray residents were under a mandatory evacuation.

For all other residents, officials with the municipality said evacuees should head north of Fort McMurray towards Noralta Lodge – by Tuesday evening, officials said Noralta Lodge was full, followed a short time later by Grey Wolf Lodge. Officials said evacuees would get instructions on where to go once they reached Noralta Lodge.

While residents had experienced traffic delays earlier Tuesday as they tried to evacuate the community, officials said later Tuesday evening that all lanes of Highway 63 starting on the northern edge of the city, at the TaigaNova Crescent, were running northbound.

In a news conference late Tuesday afternoon, officials said MacDonald Island – the centre originally used a reception centre for evacuees, had been evacuated itself.

In addition, officials confirmed to CTV News that the Fort McMurray hospital was being evacuated Tuesday evening.
At about 5 p.m., it was believed about 29,000 people had been evacuated – at that time it was already the largest evacuation due to fire in the province’s history.

Officials have asked residents to avoid areas that are under evacuation notice – saying in a statement: “If you’re not at home, do not return home.”
Those trying to leave the area were encountering traffic issues on the highway heading out of town - all due to traffic volume.

The Fort McMurray Airport has said the fire has prompted the cancellation of some flights - officials asked passengers to contact their airline for their flight status.

Officials said Tuesday that the fire, located just west of Fort McMurray, had grown to more than 2,600 hectares as of Tuesday morning. The last size reported was about 1,285 on Monday.
As of late Tuesday afternoon, officials said nine air tankers, more than a dozen helicopters and more than one hundred firefighters were on scene working to fight the blaze - and more crews were on the way to help.
In addition, the landfill remains closed.






Absolutely crazy. Mother nature is really kicking them when they're down (Karma?)

That's some scary shit. Friend's bf works in Ft Mac and was on his way back to work when he got the call to stay in BC. Only time I've ever experienced a wildfire was back in the early 2000s when the area surrounding Princeton went up. Thankfully we didn't have to evacuate but I remember having it hanging over our heads the entire time we were up there.

Wildfire caused by humans or nature?

Hopefully not by some selfish, son-of-a-bitch arsonist.

I've never been to Fort Mac so I'm not aware of the landscape, but if I was there with my truck, I would 4x4 the fuck out of there.

Isn't this a blessing in disguise for laid off workers?
Home prices dropped 30%+
Truck payments
Ski-doo payments

all covered by insurance. Although maybe the insurance companies might try to weasel out.

I saw some videos of people crossing the median to drive in the oncoming lane, mind you nobody was trying to get back in the city, there were a few of them in a row.
