More Fort McMurray Wildfire Evacuations
The direction the wind blows today will affect the course of a wildfire that’s again threatening Fort McMurray.
The fire began moving north again, last night, prompting a mandatory evacuation order for about 8-thousand people.
Work camps and Syncrude and Suncor facilities north of the city are affected.
The order does not include the hamlet of Fort MacKay, Athabasca Camp or the Beaver River Camp.
Suncor said last night it had begun a staged and orderly shutdown of its base plant operations and that personnel were being transported to work camps farther north.
