THE FORT MCMURRAY firethe one you probably forgot aboutis still burning. In addition to the city it consumed to earn its name, the fire has burned forest over 500,000 hectares of land across northern Alberta. Which is roughly equal to: three and a quarter Oahus; one point six Rhode Islands; or all of Long Island plus Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx, Yonkers, Newark, Hoboken, Jersey City, Elizabeth, Fort Lee, Monache, you get the picture. This ishas beena very big fire.

.

The question at this point is whether it will remain so. So far, wind and heat have made the burn nearly impossible to contain. But this weekends forecast calls for rain and cooler temperatures. We can fight as long and hard as we want, but the only thing that will stop a wildfire this size is rain, says aptly named Travis Fairweather, wildfire information officer with the government of Alberta.

.

Lets recap. Fort McMurray iswasa city of some 80,000 people in the heart of Canadas oil country. The fire broke out on May 1, in the woods southwest of town. It jumped to a trailer park the same day, and by May 3 had consumed a quarter of the city. Officials declared a total evacuation. May is a strange time for a wildfire in the Canadian taiga forest. But this has been an El Ni year, and the winter brought little snow. That, combined with unseasonably hot weather, low humidity, and high winds, turned the fire into an inferno.
