By Rod Nickel and Liz Hampton CONKLIN/LAC LA BICHE, Alberta (Reuters) - A convoy of evacuees from the Canadian oil town of Fort McMurray drove through the heart of a massive wildfire on Friday guided by police and military helicopters as they sought to reach safety to the south of the burning city. "It reminded us of a war zone," said Marisa Heath, who spent 36 hours in her truck on the side of the highway with her husband, two dogs, a cat and seven kittens. All you could see was cement foundations of houses." Helicopters hovered overhead watching for flames, and police set up emergency fuel stations along Alberta Highway 63 to keep the line of cars moving.
