An out-of-control wildfire burning in northern Alberta forced 4,000 to flee their homes in High Level, and another 700 from Bushe River First Nation.

No injuries were reported as people were sent to nearly a dozen locations, including an evacuation centre in Slave Lake.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenny said the fire is rated at the highest danger level.
