Canadian city evacuated over wildfire

All 100,000 residents of the Canadian city of Fort McMurray have been ordered to leave town as fire sweeps through the oil sands region.
"North edge of [the] fire is growing rapidly. All of Fort McMurray is under a mandatory evacuation order," emergency services announced, noting that the airport was spared from the order.
Hours earlier, a more limited alert saw authorities evacuate 30,000 people.
