EDMONTON  The man who has been the face of the fire fight in Fort McMurray is taking some time off.

.

While the fire still rages out of control in the forest, Wood Buffalo fire Chief Darby Allen says work inside the city is moving toward recovery and that’s not his expertise.

.

He says he will be heading south to Edmonton to have a beer and spend some time with his wife and two adult sons.

.

He’s planning to be back in Fort McMurray in about a week to resume his job as fire chief again.

.

Allen has been one of the people leading the battle against the wildfire that swept into the city last week and his heartfelt updates on social media have made him a celebrity of sorts.

.

More than 2,400 homes and buildings were destroyed in the blaze and 530 were damaged, but firefighters under his charge have been credited with saving up to 90 per cent of the city.

.

Crews continued to snuff out flareups and seek out hot spots Thursday while inspectors assessed damage to homes and businesses.

.

Municipal Affairs Minister Danielle Larivee says as the focus shifts to stabilization and recovery, the key goals are making sure the fire is completely out, restoring utilities and ensuring the hospital is functional.

.

That’s especially important in an isolated region like Fort McMurray where the next nearest hospital is hours away, she told a briefing in Edmonton.

.

Larivee expects it will take five days to assess all structures in the city, but emphasized there is still no fixed date for a return.

.

“We know that this is not what Fort McMurray and area residents want to hear, but this is what we need to do to ensure safety,” she said.

.

“The good news is that there are a lot of people already working in the community to make it safe,” she continued.
