Fort McMurray evacuations underway as wildfires rage out of control

From Global News.

Residents of several neighbourhoods in Fort McMurray have been ordered to leave their homes as a wildfire rages out of control south of the community — triggering memories of the devastating fire eight years ago.

"This is our second time now, so kinda got the routine down now," one resident said on his way out.

Many residents decided to leave the city despite not receiving the order.
