Wildfires in the Canadian province of Alberta this week have engulfed thousands of homes, forced the evacuation of an entire city, and spewed smoke and ash into the air.

.

Fire conditions remained  extreme on Thursday, Albertas government said in a statement. A total 49 wildfires are burning, with seven considered out of control. Twenty-three of the fires have been contained. Eighteen new blazes have started since Wednesday.

.

A small blaze began in Fort McMurray, located in Canadas oil-sands country, over the weekend. Dry conditions and a sudden spike in temperature to 32 degrees Celsius, or about 90 degrees Fahrenheit, fed the flames, which by Tuesday had become too severe to control. The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, where Fort McMurray is located, ordered a mandatory evacuation of the city Tuesday night. About 88,000 people have evacuated Fort McMurray since.

More than 1,110 firefighters, 145 helicopters, and 22 air tankers are fighting the blaze, Albertas government said. The flames cover at least 10,000 hectares, or about 24,710 acres.

.

Officials have ordered mandatory evacuations for Anzac, Gregoire Lake Estates, Fort McMurray First Nation, small communities to the south of Fort McMurray, and Mackenzie County, located northeast of the city. All residents of Anzac and Gregoire Lake Estates were evacuated by early Thursday, officials said. Albertas health department has issued an air-quality advisory for the Fort McMurray area.
