Alberta Town of High Level Evacuated as Wildfire Looms

An evacuation order for the Alberta town of High Level was issued on May 20 as the nearby Chuckegg Creek wildfire continued to burn out of control.

Around 5,000 people from the town, and neighboring First Nations communities, had to leave, the Globe and Mail said.

The fire, rated at the highest danger level and expected to worsen, had burned some 800 square kilometers, or 300 square miles, by May 21.

The premier of Alberta, Jason Kenney, flew over the fire and said the government “will be here to help”.
