A wildfire that is raging in the northern Alberta oilsands city of Fort McMurray has now destroyed 80 per cent of the homes in one neighbourhood and extensively damaged property in a number of others. An overnight update from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo says the Beacon Hill suburb in the south end has suffered the most damage from flames that ripped into the city Tuesday afternoon, forcing the evacuation of all 80,000 residents.
