FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta – The images are ones of devastation – scorched homes, virtually whole neighborhoods burned to the ground. It rained a little Sunday morning in Fort McMurray, but Canadian officials say they expect to fight the massive wildfire that has destroyed large parts of Alberta’s oil sands town for months.

.

There’s fear the growing wildfire could get much larger and reach a major oil sands mine and even cross into the neighboring province of Saskatchewan.

.

“We still expect this fire to more than double in size because of the high temperatures, strong winds and low humidities,” Alberta wildfire protection manager Chad Morrison said.

.

The Alberta government said the massive blaze in the province will cover more than 495,000 acres by Sunday and continue to grow because of high temperatures, dry conditions and high winds.

.

Morrison said it’s not uncommon to fight such an inferno in forested areas for months.

.

Morrison said the fire was burning away from communities this weekend. He expected cooler temperatures along with the rain Sunday, but significant rainfall is needed to put out the flames.

.

The Rural Municipality of Wood Buffalo, which includes Fort McMurray, tweeted a picture of the rainfall. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley retweeted the picture and wrote “Here’s hoping for much more!”

.

Officials had hoped to complete the mass evacuation of work camps north of Fort McMurray on Saturday. Thousands of displaced residents got a drive-by view of some of the burned-out neighborhoods as convoys continued. No deaths or injuries have been reported since the fire started last Sunday.

.

Notley said about 12,000 evacuees have been airlifted from oil sands mine air fields over the past two days, and about 7,000 have left in highway convoys escorted by police. She said the goal was to complete the evacuation from northern work camps by Sunday.
