Firefighters spent the night battling a wildfire in northern Colorado that has scorched more than 200 acres.
LIVERMORE, Colo. (AP) - Residents of 13 homes that were evacuated are being allowed back home, but Larimer County sheriff's officials say they should be ready to leave again if fire conditions change.
Authorities said Tuesday that lightning started the wildfire, which has damaged at least two buildings since it started Monday.
The fire is about 40 miles northwest of Fort Collins in rocky terrain north of where a camp stove ignited a wildfire last month.
In eastern Colorado, authorities think a cigarette thrown from a passing car may have ignited a 4-acre fire near Akron, and another fire near Pagosa Springs is still smoldering after burning nearly eight square miles.
