Evacuation orders have been lifted around a nearly 14-thousand-acre wildfire in southern Colorado as firefighters get help from cooler, more humid weather.

The fire near Fort Garland is 50 percent contained.

At one point, residents of about 300 homes were asked to leave after the fire started June 18th. Fire officials say residents could be asked to evacuate again if the weather and fire activity shift.
