Over the last three days 1,600 homes and business have been destroyed, highways blocked and the airport closed. The fire has been exacerbated by unseasonably warm temperatures and dry conditions. Paige Parsons, who is covering the fire for the Edmonton Journal, speaks with Here & Now's Robin Young by Skype to provide the latest details.
