National park fire evacuees begin to return home
ESTES PARK, Colo. — Some residents who live near a wildfire in Rocky Mountain National Park are being allowed to return home, but they aren’t out of the woods yet.
The U.S. Forest Service says some people can go home Wednesday, but they will remain under a pre-evacuation notice for the near future.
The Forest Service says the fire has been burning for nearly two months and scorched about six square miles. It is only 40 percent contained.
The fire has burned at least one cabin and forced the evacuation of several areas in and around the park.
