88,000 people evacuated 1,600 homes destroyed in Canadian Fire
On Wednesday, one resident in the devastated oil sands city of Fort McMurray filmed the moment he had to drive across town through flying embers and black-out smoke.
Cars can be seen veering from lane-to-lane to avoid the flames as gusts of wind threaten to push burning trees over.
Though it was filmed at 2pm, the scene looks dark as night. Officials said conditions remained extreme across the region and that strong winds were helping spread the fire, which appears to be moving south.
The communities of Anzac, Gregoire Lake Estates and Fort McMurray First Nation, an aboriginal reservation, were evacuated overnight after the wildfires moved south.
The fire has already forced the evacuation of more than 80,000 people and torched 1,600 homes and other buildings in Fort McMurray.
There have been no injuries or death from the fires. The province of Alberta declared a state of emergency.
'Homes have been destroyed. Neighborhoods have gone up in flames.
