“They call it the beast, this fire, because there is so much fuel for it to feed on,” Murphy said on board the plane Saturday evening. “Everything is just so tinder dry. Looking at images of people driving through the streets, with flames on each sides, cinders falling all around, I just can’t imagine.”
It seriously looks like an Armageddon movie.

I just started hearing about it today...apparently it's likely to keep burning for a while?

I saw estimates ranging into months. There's no amount of manpower that can put it out now. Only nature can, and there's no rainfall forecasted for a very long time.
I'm spending a year dead for tax reasons.

That Photo really doesn't do it justice...
The photos coming out of the aftermath too, with a house here still standing while everything around it is gone, or a car seemingly untouched while teh one behind it is a sell just go to prove how fickle and unpredictable the fire is. There's no real sense of rhyme or reason as to why those are still standing or there when everything else is gone. While those that remain seemingly untouched will be torn down anyways it's just so... odd to see them untouched.
I've been through a number of fires in my region now too, literally all you can do is hope the weather helps because in some cases, that's all that can keep it from burning down the entire area or nothing getting damaged at all.
Yeah. Hopefully we get some massive rain in Alberta soon, or else it's just gunna keep burning.
