The Alberta government says the massive wildfire in the province now covers more than 156,000 hectares (385,476 acres) and is expected to grow.
    
That number includes burned areas and those areas still in flames. The fire was 101,000 hectares (249,571 acres) on Saturday and officials believed it could double in size.
    
Canadian officials are continuing to transport residents of wildfire-ravaged Fort McMurray out of the area.
