COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters continue to make strides battling the most destructive blaze in Colorado history, and authorities are hopeful they may soon be able to lift more evacuation orders.
About 10,000 people remain evacuated as of Sunday morning, down from more than 30,000 at the peak of the Waldo Canyon fire, one several burning across the West.
Authorities said they would decide by early afternoon whether it was safe enough to let more people into areas that had been closed.
Also Sunday people whose homes were burned will be allowed to tour the affected areas. About 350 residences were destroyed last week.
