    Fort McMurray wildfire remains out of control after city evacuated

    A huge wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alta., destroyed an entire neighbourhood and burned homes and businesses in several others Tuesday, and continues to rage out of control.

    By late afternoon, the entire city of 60,000 had been ordered evacuated. Residents by the thousands fled the fire and for hours caused gridlock on Highway 63, even overwhelming oilsands work camps, where beds and meals were offered. Police were patrolling the highway with cans of gas, after fuel supplies ran out in Fort McMurray, Wandering River and Grasslands.

    Fire chief Darby Allen said the entire neighbourhood of Beacon Hill "appears to have been lost" and the fire burned many homes in other parts of the city.

    For those who are geographically challenged, Ft McMurray is located in the Canadian province of Alberta. So, this is a Trudeau problem not Obama.

    I was actually looking around at real estate in Fort McMurray a few days ago. The prices were very high.
