Wildfire 65 percent contained

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Some evacuees living outside the burn area of a 22-square-mile Colorado wildfire have been allowed back home.

But other residents have only been allowed back briefly, and escorted, to retrieve some belongings.

The fire near Colorado Springs is now 65 percent contained, but it's destroyed nearly 500 homes.

Two people were killed last week.
