Default While Fort McMurray Burns

It does look like they got all people are out but most of the town is on fire.
A big shout out for the little town of Lac la biche with 2500 residence and they are looking after 12,000 evacuees.

Is the area burning a populated area or is it forest? From the looks of it on the national channels, there seem to be significant loss of property. Last I heard there wasn't hope of containing it for the next few weeks. Good grief, that has to be awful.

The town of Ft McMurray was a direct hit. I believe the number of people that had to leave may be 80,000! Video from the escape is awesome/scary.
