Residents evacuated by the Mason Fire were able to wake up in their own homes Thursday morning. Evacuation orders were lifted Wednesday afternoon, and some five-thousand people were allowed to return home.

The fire, which has burned more than 12,000 acres, is 60-percent contained, but officials felt it was safe for residents to return home.

Crews are still working to get the fire 100-percent contained, and expect that to happen by Saturday.

No injuries have been reported and no homes have been lost
