A massive wildfire that destroyed parts of Fort McMurray hasn't grown in size in the forest around the city and officials are bringing in more firefighters to try and gain the upper hand. Alberta senior wildlife manager Chad Morrison says cooler temperatures, higher humidity and a forecast for rain have allowed the government to safely put more crews on fighting the fire. (The blaze is already about five thousand square kilometres in size, with nearly eight square kilometres stretching over into the Saskatchewan boundary.)
