On May 1, 2016, a wildfire began southwest of Ft. McMurray, Alberta, Canada. In the days that followed, the fire swept through the community, destroying more than 2,400 homes and buildings and forcing residents to flee in the biggest wildfire evacuation in Albertan history, spanning more than 1.4 million acres.
