The wildfire in northern Alberta charred more than 500,000 hectares of land, six times the size of New York City, since it hit Fort McMurray in early May.

It forced widespread evacuations and triggered a prolonged energy shutdown that has cut Canadian oil output by a million barrels a day.

The fire’s footprint now exceeds the total area burned during Alberta’s entire 2015 fire season, and flames spread on Thursday into the neighbouring province of Saskatchewan, though no evacuations were ordered there so far.

Thankfully no deaths have been reported.
