FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Little Rock Police Department shows Little Rock police Officer Donna Lesher. On Friday, May 6, 2016, the city of Little Rock agreed to settle a lawsuit from the family of 67-year-old black man Eugene Ellison, who was fatally shot in 2010 after Lesher and Tabitha McCrillis, two off-duty, white police officers entered his apartment without a warrant, a city official told The Associated Press. The city agreed to settle the years-old case, which was scheduled to go to trial on Monday, May 9, in part because of years of possible appeals. (Little Rock Police Department via AP, File)LITTLE ROCK, Ark.

By Liz Hampton GREGOIRE LAKE, Alberta (Reuters) - An indoor security camera gave the world a haunting five-minute glimpse of one of the worst wildfires in Canadian history as it roared through a living room in Fort McMurray and the homeowner watched it burn on his mobile phone. The video from a fixed camera in James O'Reilly's home began with a seemingly serene shot of red walls, a brown couch and a glowing fish tank before the view turned to heavy smoke, ash and flames outside the window, the slow breaking of glass and smoke filling the room.

A flock of birds fly as smoke billows from the Fort McMurray wildfires in KinosisBy Rod Nickel and Liz Hampton WANDERING RIVER, Alberta (Reuters) - Convoys of evacuees stranded by a wildfire raging unchecked in and around the Canadian oil town of Fort McMurray made their way on Friday through the heart of the devastation on the only highway out of the region, passing through the city's charred ruins. Wind-whipped flames roaring through heavy timber and brush parched by a spring heat wave have engulfed nearly 250,000 acres (101,000 hectares) in western Canada's energy heartland since erupting on Sunday. The blaze, the largest of 40 wildfires burning across the province of Alberta, has forced some 88,000 residents, virtually the entire population of Fort McMurray, to flee for safety, and has threatened two oil sands production sites south of the city.
