Citizens return to Fort McMurray and Fort McMurray First Nation

The city of Fort McMurray is one step closer to being back to normal. Residents are starting to return home this week.

The blaze that destroyed 1,500 homes and made 500 home unlivable continues to grow. The fire is nearly 600,000 hectares in both Alberta and Saskatchewan, but is not near any settlements.

Now, after a month of living in campers, community centers and hotels, the residents of Fort McMurray First Nation are coming home.
