Officials say the Fort McMurray wildfire has slowed, but it continues to burn out of control.
A drop in temperature has given fire crews a small break, but low humidity and high winds are expected to keep the situation dangerous.
Regional fire chief Darby Allen took to social media early this morning to send a message to residents, saying things had “calmed down a bit” in the city itself.
The fire exploded in size on Tuesday afternoon and sent about 80-thousand Fort McMurray residents fleeing under a mandatory evacuation order.
