LAC LA BICHE, Alberta (Reuters) - A raging Canadian wildfire grew
explosively on Saturday as hot, dry winds pushed the blaze across the
energy heartland of Alberta and smoke forced the shutdown of a major oil
sands project.

.

The fire that has already prompted the evacuation of 88,000 people from
the city of Fort McMurray was on its way to doubling in size on Saturday,
the seventh day of what is expected to be the costliest natural disaster
in Canadas history.

.

Police escorted another convoy of evacuees out of the oil sands region
north of Fort McMurray, taking them on a harrowing journey through burned
out parts of the city and billowing smoke. Some 1,600 structures are
believed to have been lost.

.

With temperatures on Saturday expected to rise as high as 28 Celsius (82
Fahrenheit), officials said the weather was hindering efforts to fight the
wildfire.

.

It is a dangerous, unpredictable fire, an absolutely vicious fire that is
feeding off of an extremely dry boreal forest, Canadian Public Safety
Minister Ralph Goodale told a media briefing.

.

The fire had scorched at least 156,000 hectares (385,000 acres) by
Saturday morning, the Alberta government said. Officials warned late on
Friday that the area affected by the fire, which they then said was
101,000 hectares, could double in size by the end of Saturday.

.

More than 500 firefighters are battling the blaze in and around Fort
McMurray, along with 15 helicopters and 14 air tankers, the Alberta
government said.

.

Within Fort McMurray, visibility is often less than 30 feet (9 meters) due
to the smoke, making it still very dangerous to circulate in the city,
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Inspector Kevin Kunetzki told reporters at a
highway checkpoint.

.

Despite the fires rapid spread, Goodale said there was no indication that
oil infrastructure was at risk.

.

But the Syncrude oil sands project said Saturday it will shut down its
northern Alberta operation and remove all personnel from the site due to
smoke. There was no imminent threat from the fire.

.

At least 10 oil sand operators have cut production due to evacuations and
other emergency measures that complicated delivery of petroleum by rail,
pipeline and highway.
