COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities in Colorado will be lifting more evacuation orders for people who had to flee their homes because of the worst wildfire in state history.

As of 8 p.m. Sunday night, about 7,000 more people will be allowed to return to their residences. At the peak of the Waldo Creek fire that broke out last week more than 30,000 people were displaced.

Crews continue to make progress fighting the blaze in Colorado Springs, one of many burning across the West.
