On May 1, 2016, a wildfire began southwest of Fort McMurrayAlbertaIt swept through the community, on May 3rd destroying more than 2,400 homes and buildings and forcing the largest wildfire evacuation in Alberta85 per cent of Fort McMurray is still intact, despite a devastating wildfire that ravaged several neighbourhoods.
Beacon Hill and most of Abasand were almost completely levelled by the flames, with home after home reduced to nothing but ash, concrete and rebar. Vehicles sitting in driveways are now just metal carcasses and melted tires. Blackened barbecues sit next to metal patio sets and children’s bicycles lie broken and twisted from the heat.
