Fire in Canada – level 2

Fire in Canada – level 2

11-05-2016 15:00

There is a fire in Alberta, Canada. It spread to the outskirts of a city and forced the evacuation of 80,000 people. One woman said that they could not even take their things. They lost everything.

The fire stretches for 6,540 acres. Firefighters are continuing to tackle the fire, and they called for more help from other parts of Canada.

Last Wednesday, it was windy, which made the firefighting even more difficult.

Difficult words: outskirt (an outer part of a city), stretch (to exist over an area), tackle (to fight).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
