CONKLIN/LAC LA BICHE A convoy of stranded residents drove back through the Canadian oil town of Fort McMurray, escaping the fire-ravaged region under police escort on Friday, taking the only route out as the massive wildfire spread.
Fire enveloped Fort McMurray, burning some 210,000 acres (85,000 hectares) in the area, forcing 88,000 people to flee on Tuesday and Wednesday, and threatening two oil sands sites south of the city. While the main fire turned southeast on Thursday, away from town, parts of the city still burned.
