The Fort McMurray wildfire continues to grow, and now covers over 580,663 including 3,200 in Saskatchewan.
That’s grown nearly 4,000 hectares since Friday.
Right now there are 17 wildfires burning in Alberta, but the Fort McMurray blaze is still the only one out of control.
There are also 2,267 firefighters battling the blazes in Alberta, thanks to reinforcements from around the world this week.
Those include 298 from South Africa and 199 from the United States.
Temperatures in Fort McMurray are expected to be moderate over the weekend, with some possible showers, which should give firefighters a bit of a break. (km)
