I am terrified of fire. Maybe because I started one in our family kitchen when I was in Grade 8. Making donuts.
When I was running around screaming “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!” my little brother calmly and wisely said, “Call the fire department.”
The Fort McMurray fire is on a scale I can’t even imagine. I’ve made a donation to the Red Cross relief fund. Wish I could do more.
Acc. to this Globe & Mail article, here are ways to help:

Praying they can stop it soon and that no one gets hurt.
