It’s been one week since the fire known as “the beast” reared it’s ugly head.

.

The wildfire outside of Fort McMurray, once measured in football fields, now sits at more than 2,000 square kilometres, three times the size of Edmonton.

.

“The beast” continues to grow and has now set its sights on Saskatchewan.

.

More than 500 firefighters working alongside 15 helicopters and 14 air tankers are battling the blaze.

.

Over the past seven days the fire has consumed more than 1,600 homes and buildings. It’s forced 80,000 people from their homes and remains untamable.

.

The “beast” isn’t the only inferno raging across Alberta’s forests, in total 43 fires are burning   seven out of control, one being held, and 35 under control.

.

Twelve new fires started on Saturday alone.

.

State of the neighbourhoods

.

Ever since the beginning of the burn Darby Allen, the fire chief of the Wood Buffalo Regional Municipality, has been the voice for those on the front lines.

.

Allen said that he knows people are worried about their homes and are frustrated with the lack of information.

.

“We’re really working hard on that. It’s a complicated process,” said Allen. “What’s damaged, what’s left, is it a garage only, is it a house?”

.

“So we really will get that to you as soon as we possibly can.”

Fire officials say the Fort McMurray wildfire is still spreading and is so massive that only a significant amount of rain can bring it under control.

.

Wind gusts of 40 to 70 km/h were expected in the region Sunday, and possibly light rain, as part of a cold front that’s moving into northern Alberta.

.

The winds will help fuel the flames and what little moisture there is should not bring much relief to those battling the fire.

.

“It certainly will increase in size today, and it’s still listed as out of control and the conditions are still very dry. We do have some difficult weather, some interesting weather, coming up,” said Matthew Anderson, wildfire information officer with Alberta Agriculture, speaking from Edmonton on Sunday.

.

“There’s another cold front coming through and ahead of that front it’s going to be very gusty, so this morning that could cause some significant growth as the winds shift and move through,” he told CBC News.

.

“However, behind it, it’s bringing cooler temperatures, at least by 10 degrees, perhaps dropping, and the humidity is increasing as well.”
