Good morning everyone, normally I would not post something like this but I feel that posting this for prayers is a good idea.

There is a small city north of us (Fort McMurray Alberta) about 5hrs that has a huge forest fire burning out of control and has already burnt about 20% of the citys homes. Last night a mandatory evacuation was issued for the ENTIRE CITY of 80,000 people!

Today could be so bad that the fire could spread through the city.

Unusually hot and dry conditions (in the 90s) and little snow over the winter has left the entire province where I live in drought conditions.

Please pray as the situation is quite dire.

Update: Nearly half the city has now been destroyed by the fires. Almost 500 firefighters and military personal are now on the scene to help with efforts to control the fires by ground and by air but given how hot the fires are burning and the winds behind them it is almost futile. Thankfully no lives have been lost.

Terrible fire, hoping for the best that everyone gets out ok.
