Fire appears to be moving away from Glenwood

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Fire managers say residents who were forced from their homes by a wildfire burning southeast of Glenwood Springs will be allowed to return Friday morning.

Fire officials say pre-evacuation notices also will be lifted at 9 a.m. Friday.

The 390-acre Red Canyon Fire had threatened 20 structures. Fire officials say the fire didn't grow Thursday and is now 75 percent contained.

Authorities believe lightning may have started the blaze on Monday, but the cause is under investigation.
