Tracking the Fort McMurray wildfire: The flames have consumed 101,000 hectares and show no sign of stopping

The fight against a massive wildfire that grew to 850 square kilometres as of Thursday, burning structures within Fort McMurray city limits, continues. The region’s 88,000 residents have been evacuated and over 1,000 firefighters are battling to protect the northern Alberta community. The fire is burning out of control and has now consumed 101,000 hectares. It shows no signs of stopping. The only thing that will halt its growth its rain – and that’s looking unlikely.
