Holy crap! This is horrible and our provincial government reduced budget and saying it's too big. What a load of bullshit! The military is there, they got a lot of jets, and helicopters, firemen from out of town. It's absolutely horrifying, and I hope the best for them. There is going to be so much loss after this.
My dad took these pictures since he works up there as a safety inspector, keep in mind this is when the fire just started.
That's then, he had to go up North and 80'000 people were evacuated. This is what it's like now-ish...
The whole city will likely be burned and they won't be able to control it tonight. It's being considered catastrophic and it's not slowing down. http://edmontonjournal.com/news/loc...ldfire-pushed-back-even-as-temperatures-climb
