As Fort McMurray looks to rebuild after a massive wildfire swept through parts of the city, videos bringing us a close-up look of the blaze's devastating force on people's homes are surfacing.

One clip uploaded to YouTube on Sunday, shows the damage inflicted by the inferno on the community of Stone Creek. The video, shared by user Tony Eric, shows scorched vehicles and rows of buildings completely pulverized to rubble.

The wildfire has forced the evacuation of more than 80,000 people from the area. Last week, officials said around 1,600 structures have been damaged by the fire.

Many other videos show equally haunting visuals.

One resident even shared security camera footage from inside his home as it was devoured by the wildfire.

But while some communities like Beacon Hill took serious damage from the wildfire, that's luckily not the case for most of the city.

Local MP David Yurdiga said the majority of Fort McMurray's homes were safe.

"I toured probably every neighbourhood in Fort McMurray and 80 per cent of the homes are standing," he said. "Some areas you don't even know there was a fire."
