One week ago, I wrote an article about the Chuckegg Creek Fire in Northern Alberta near the town of High Level going out of control. At that time it had already burned 69,000 hectares (170,500 acres).
Now, the fire has grown to 230,000 hectares, or 568,000 acres and nothing seems to be able to stop it yet. Major cities of Edmonton and Calgary are shrouded in thick smoke, while the northern US get red, apocalyptic sunsets.
The Chuckegg Creek Fire in Northern Alberta near the town of High Level was very active over the last 48 hours while being pushed by strong winds.
Exhibiting extreme fire behavior, it grew to the south about 11 miles, and while moving 12 miles to the east it crossed Highway 35 and jumped the Peace River both north and south of the ferry crossing on Highway 697.
Alberta Wildfire estimated it has burned 230,000 hectares, or 568,000 acres.
Those not in immediate danger are still dealing with the impacts of the large fires. Cities of Edmonton and Calgary are ‘smoked’.

Smoke streamed into Edmonton, the province’s capital located roughly 350 miles from the worst of the fires, on Thursday.
The air turned a toxic yellow with residents capturing otherworldly photos of the skyline and likening the scene to the apocalypse. Which yes.
In other news… The Apocalypse is upon us. #yeg #yegwx pic.twitter.com/Mr2sb8qXaJ— Andrew Grose (@GroseAndrew) May 30, 2019
The air is hard to breathe.
The smoke is very thick:

A hell for asthma sufferers:
I drove 5 hrs last night from Lethbridge to Edmonton & 75% of the drive was covered with dark smokey sky.That’s a significant portion of the province covered in thick smoke.This should be alarming to everyone because we can hardly see or breathe due to #climateinaction. #abfires pic.twitter.com/LLzg4YIPF9— Dr. Karli Kay (@karliwithakay) May 31, 2019
Americans got to enjoy a slightly more diluted dose of wildfire smoke.

Blood red sun enthusiasts from Iowa to Vermont were treated to an angry orb in the sky on Thursday during sunset and again on Friday morning for sunrise.

“I believe that the fire started during the week of May 12. It reached the 100,000-acre threshold to become a ‘megafire’ on May 20. Now that it has easily grown to 568,000 acres, I wonder if it will reach a million acres to become a ‘gigafire’,” explains Bill Gabbert.
I don’t recall ever hearing of a gigafire before. Canada, do you really think you are gonna outburn the US? We’ll see what the West Coast has to say aboot that! Lately, a bushfire near Broome, Western Australia, burned 880,000 hectares, or 2,174,527 acres, becoming a gigafire.

started by muslims…congratulations for suicidal diversity
Started by Muslims? Justin Trudeau wants them there to destroy whites. Might as well burn his forest.
All nations that reject God and murder Gods servants eventually burn like Sodom and Gomorrah.
Babylon will be the mother of all fires when it is her turn.
““I will send FOUR kinds of destroyers against them,” declares the Lord, “the sword to kill and the dogs to drag away and the birds and the wild animals to devour and destroy.”
““For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my FOUR DREADFUL JUDGMENTS—sword and famine and wild beasts and plague—to kill its men and their animals!”
“I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by SWORD, FAMINE and PLAGUE, and by the WILD BEASTS of the earth.” (Same as the FOUR DREADFUL JUDGEMENTS in Ezekiel 14)
*Sword =’s Growing and Recurring Natural Disasters of all Sorts… Tornado’s, Fire, Floods, Hurricanes et al… as well as War and others!! Everything spinning out of control in the world is covered under these “FOUR Dreadful Judgements/Plagues of God!!!
What the “UNSPIRITED” call “Global Warming” and the Conspiracy Theorcist’s call “HAARP” is really just GODS JUDGEMENTS and the CONSUMMATON of Prophecy, Judgement and Time!!!!
I don’t understand why they ignore wildfires in the north till they’re out of control! Send in all available troops from all provinces and the USA to deal with these fires before they become disasters!
You are right. This is totally weird from officials always wait until the situation has no issues.
