About 4,000 oilsands workers in camps north of Fort McMurray have been forced to evacuate once again.

.

A wildfire that destroyed whole sections of Fort McMurray earlier this month has again forced workers to leave all camps up to Ruth Lake, 26 km north of the city, including numerous Noralta work camps.

.

A fire travelling at 30 to 40 metres per minute was heading north towards Tower Road, on the west edge of Fort McMurray, as of 2:30 p.m., according to a news release from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.

.

Noralta spokeswoman Blaire McCalla said Monday the “controlled precautionary evacuation” was renewed for all camps along AOSTRA Road, including Noralta Lodge in Fort McMurray Village, the camp closest to the north edge of the city.

.

Camps evacuated on Monday include:

.

Noralta;

Poplar Creek (Birch);

Poplar Creek Lodge;

Blacksands;

Baseline;

Mackay River;

Brion Dover;

Brion Ops Corp Camp;

STP Mackay Lodge;

Brion Dover South Base (Thickwood);

South Pacific Resources.

Workers essential to operations have been sent farther north to Grey Wolf

Lodge, which remains a safe area.

Fort McKay is not evacuating at this time.

.

“This is a very fluid situation and we are taking our cues from emergency responders to ensure the ongoing safety of our guests and staff,” McCalla said in a statement.

.

Highway 63 northbound into Fort McMurray is closed and Highway 881 also remains closed.

.

Highway 63 southbound remains open.

.

‘We’re very tense,’ oil worker says

.

Cody Andruchow is staying at Hudson Lodge, a Suncor camp around 30 km north of Fort McMurray.

.

He said the sky was a “bright orange” at 2 p.m. then turned dark grey an hour later. At 4:30, they were given orders to evacuate. Shortly after that, RCMP and camp managers told them they were safe, but to be on standby.

.

“We’re very tense, scary situation,” he said. “Everybody is concerned. But we’re safe for right now.

.

.

During a news conference on Monday, Premier Rachel Notley urged those not already in the Fort McMurray area to stay away, due to air quality so toxic it surpasses provincial measurements.

.

Alberta uses a scale of one to 10 to measure air quality, with 10 considered to be the highest risk.

.

Air quality in the Fort McMurray area on Monday morning was 38.
