Earlier this week, wildfires erupted in Western Canada that cannot be tamed. The fires in the province of Alberta caused nearly 90,000 people were forced to flee, some were even forced to evacuate twice. Access to the City of Fort McMurray is currently restricted as 400 foot flames were found smothering the road.
As the wildfires destroy more than 1,600 structures, more than 1,110 firefighters, 145 helicopters and 22 air tankers are fighting the fires. The cause of the inferno, which erupted on Sunday, remains unknown.
Most devastating of all, many pet owners evacuated were forced to leave behind their pets because of the urgent evacuation. However, as the days go by, the owners hope they can soon go back and rescue their pets. There is help for the pets evacuated, however, the ones left behind are left to fend for themselves as the final SPCA has just been evacuated by all its staff.
The Alberta government is providing cash to 80,000 evacuees from the Fort McMurray fire to help them with their immediate needs. It is said that the fire could double in size. Firefighters continue to have trouble putting out the fire and it could grow tremendously if it can not be tamed soon. For further information, watch this CNN news clip on the subject.
