It's back-to-school time for graduating students in Fort McMurray. Convocation ceremonies and prom parties are being held in the northern Alberta city today and tomorrow. The events were delayed after a wildfire swept through the city in May. Eighteen-year-old Brynne Wood has since moved to Edmonton, but is going back to Fort McMurray to catch up with her classmates one last time. (The fire destroyed about 24-hundred homes and buildings and forced more than 80-thousand people to evacuate. School officials anticipate most of the city's 600 graduates will attend.)
