Preview Clip

Residents of several neighbourhoods in Fort McMurray, Alberta have been ordered to flee due to a growing wildfire. The blaze started on the weekend and crews seemed to be making progress, but the situation has quickly worsened. Sandra Hickey lives in a neighbourhood that is currently under a voluntary evacuation order. She says there's black smoke out her window and ash covering her deck. (Fire officials had already warned earlier in the day that rising temperatures and low humidity could help the fire grow.)
