AWESUM JOB MAYOR,ESCAPING IN THE NICK OF TIME ? FIRE IN FORT McMurray –

Why escape in the nick of time one says.

Nearly 90,000 people have now fled the flames of Fort McMurray. The powerful fire continues to shift and threaten many who have fled its path. Those who went north of Fort McMurray are cut off from the south by flames. And some of those who fled to points more south to safe communities have had to move again as the winds shift and the fire veers their way.    

Everyone who has been displaced asked to register with the Red Cross, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says. The best option for those who want help is also via Red Cross.

Despite the massive assault on the fires, they continue to spread and firefighters are in retreat.

Crystal Mercredi, one of the residents who fled to Lac La Biche, south of Fort McMurray, said the evacuation call happened too late.

So late that people were stuck in traffic, and people were calling the radio station, saying…’We’re bumper-to-bumper. We can’t move. Come and save us…we’re sitting ducks.”

More than 1,100 firefighters are now battling wildfires that burn out of control in the Fort McMurray area of northern Alberta.

There are now also 145 helicopters in use to battle the blazes, which have consumed 10,000 hectares and forced more 88,000 people to flee their homes.

Also in use are 138 pieces of heavy equipment and 22 air tankers, the province of Alberta says.
