How do you stop a big, fast-moving wildfire like the one ravaging Fort
McMurray, Alberta? The answer is, you cant.

.

Don Whittemore, a senior disaster response manager from Boulder, Colo.,
who has trained teams of firefighters in the United States and abroad,
compared the task to trying to stop a hurricane from hitting the Eastern
Seaboard.

.

Wildfires are fought from the air and on the ground in a coordinated
offensive meant to keep them from spreading. If the fire can be denied
access to fresh terrain and fresh fuel, it will dwindle and burn itself
out. But when strong, shifting winds are driving the flames, as in
Alberta, the fire can move unpredictably and leap far beyond fire breaks
and other obstacles like rivers and highways, making containment efforts
futile and dangerous.

.

Its not a matter of not enough resources, or not enough money, or not
enough willpower to fight the fire, Mr. Whittemore said. Its the basic
fact that there are forces of nature that we simply cannot control.

.

Those who fight wildfires base what they do on a ranked list of
priorities, and at the very top is life and safety. If neither can be
ensured, the only sensible option is to disengage.
