Massive wildfire rages on in Alberta, Canada

Terrible images and accounts of thousands having to evacuate their homes and leave everything behind as massive wildfire still rages in Canada's oil city, the second evacuation in four days.  Strong winds forcing the fire to spread southwards.

What they really badly need is some rain.

As of June 1st, most residents have returned home, some were grateful to find their homes untouched ,while others lost everything. We get wildfires every year across Northern Canada,
in our Forests, this fire was unusual as it burned through a Town.

Some small comfort for some, but must be devastating for those poor people arriving back home only to find that their homes were destroyed.  Sad
