Wildfires approaching the capital of Canada's Northwest Territories on Thursday triggered mass evacuations from the city.
Thick smoke covered Yellowknife, as the blaze was within 16 kilometers (10 miles) of the northern part of the city.
Crews are fighting the flames, amid fears that the fire could reach the outer districts of Yellowknife by Saturday if there is no rainfall. The city has a population of nearly 20,000 residents.
