Michel Chamberland captures dashcam video of vehicles fleeing the Fort McMurray wildfire on Tuesday, May 3, 2016.
Few captured Fort McMurray fleeing last spring’s wildfire more vividly than Michel Chamberland’s dashcam video.
Nearly a year after that escape, he took the same drive with Global News him in the community of Beacon Hill.
“It was around here when you could feel the heat,” Chamberland recalled, as he drove along Beacon Hill Drive in his pickup truck.
Later, he described one of the most scary parts as traffic was gridlocked.
