Some more residents have been allowed back to their homes as firefighters make progress against the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - About 2,000 people were still under evacuation orders Monday. Some don't have homes to return to.
At its peak, about 32,000 people were forced to flee from the fire, including conservative commentator Michelle Malkin.
The 28-square-mile is 70 percent contained. The fire has damaged about 350 houses, including the home of the grandparents of Denver Broncos defensive lineman Ben Garland.
Meanwhile, firefighters have been able to keep a wildfire burning on about 21 square miles near Grand Junction from crossing the Colorado River. The Pine Ridge fire is 35 percent contained.
In northern Colorado, the High Park fire, which destroyed 259 homes, is 100 percent contained.
