Some of the devastation left behind by the Fort McMurray, Alta., wildfire, pictured May 4, 2016. The fire started on May 3, forcing 80,000 to flee the city. It destroyed 1,600 buildings, mostly homes. Alberta declared a state of emergency and the federal government has pledged all possible assistance. Twitter pic
