The reality of the situation in Fort McMurray continues to sink in for many.
Jason Edmondson is safe in Calgary after driving through the massive wildfire, capturing the fiery escape on video.
He called “insane”, telling Global News that it was like driving in a movie.
“We didn’t realize the fire was that bad,” Edmondson said. “We left our trailer park and pulled onto the road and soon as we pulled around the corner we could see the flames hitting that hillside.”
“It was automatic panic. Fear.”
Edmondson lost his home and his two cats, but he’s thankful they got out alive.
“I’m just thankful we made it out and everybody I know made it out.”
