FORT MCMURRY WILD FIRE

How It Happened

The Fort McMurry fire started by a lightning strike in a forest, wind and dry weather spread the fire quickly, too quick to stop it. This fire started on Saturday April 30th. Over 300 firefighters were trying to stop it but they aren't sure how to do it.

Helping People

Other people are helping the evacuated people from the fire by providing shelter for them in places like community centers. Policemen are helped control the traffic leaving Fort McMurray. I think the fire should be stopped by getting more firefighting equipment and people because the wind has slowed down.
