A massive convoy was under way Friday to move evacuees stranded at oil field camps north of wildfire-ravaged Fort McMurray, Alberta, through the community to safe areas south of the Canadian oil sands capital.

.

The weather forecast offered a glimmer of hope: a 40 per cent chance of rain on Sunday.

.

As police and military oversaw the procession of at least 500 vehicles, a mass airlift of evacuees resumed. A day after 8,000 people were flown out, 5,500 more were expected to be flown out on Friday.

.

More than 80,000 people have left Fort McMurray in the heart of Canada’ oil sands, where the fire has torched 1,600 homes and other buildings. The mass evacuation has forced as much as a quarter of Canada’s oil output off-line according to estimates and is expected to impact a country already hurt by a dramatic fall in the price of oil.

.

The Alberta provincial government, which declared a state of emergency, said Friday the size of the fire had grown to more than 101,000 hectares (249,571 acres). No deaths or injuries related to the fire have been reported.

.

The government said 1,100 firefighters, 110 helicopters, 295 pieces of heavy equipment and more than 27 air tankers were fighting the fire, but Chad Morrison, Alberta’s manager of wildfire prevention, said no amount of resources would put this fire out. They need rain.

.

‘We have not seen rain in this area for the last two months of significance,’ Morrison said. ‘This fire will continue to burn for a very long time until we see some significant rain.’
