A massive fire in Fort McMurray, Canada is getting worse, while 88,000 people are displaced, officials say.

The dry windy conditions in the area are making matters worse, as the fire has raged over 1,010 square kilometers.

"It's extremely dry out there. Wind continues to push from the southwest, to push the fire to the northeast into the forested areas," Alberta Wildfire official Chad Morrison has said last afternoon. "There is a high potential that this fire could double in size by the end of the day tomorrow."
