Canada wildfire: Alberta blaze threatens neighbouring province

A huge wildfire raging in the Canadian province of Alberta is growing further and could spill in to neighbouring Saskatchewan. Hot, dry and windy conditions are hampering efforts by hundreds of firefighters to tackle the blaze. The flames have already caused the evacuation of 80,000 people from the oil city of Fort McMurray. Thousands are still stuck north of the city but the authorities hope to finish their evacuation by the end of the day.
