What it’s like to run from a wildfire

The huge wildfire in Alberta grew substantially overnight, it’s burning now on both sides of Highway 63 south of Fort McMurray, blocking the only road out of town.

Many in the town barely made it out, including the gentleman who filmed his escape from the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

At 3:16, note the traffic stopped momentarily to allow a deer to cross the road, and head straight for the fire.

Here’s the raw video.
