While kilometre among kilometre of cars headed south, several CBC vehicles made their way north.
Two teams of CBC Edmonton reporters rushed toward the flames to cover the disaster that ravaged Fort McMurray.
Briar Stewart, Trevor Wilson, Rick Bremness, Terry Reith, and Marion Warnica from CBC Edmonton along with Sylvain Bascaron, Richard Marion and Emilio Avalos from Radio-Canada all saw the flames firsthand.
The reporters spent more than a week in the northern Alberta city. When residents were forced to evacuate, the teams were separated.
Warnica and Wilson were forced north alongside 25,000 other evacuees to the work camps while the rest remained south.
They spent days delivering the stories of evacuees, first responders, and oil camp workers.
Here, our reporters tell the stories behind the coverage.
