The flames have already caused the evacuation of 80,000 people from the oil city of Fort McMurray, and thousands are still stuck to the north. Their evacuation, originally planned for Saturday, will now take place on Sunday.

The wildfire now covers an area of more than 700 sq miles (2,000 sq km), which includes areas still ablaze and areas already burnt.

Smoke from the fire has already spread there, and air quality statements have been issued for both Saskatchewan and North-West Territory.
