BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– All evacuations have been lifted for the Flagstaff Fire burning in Boulder. Flagstaff Road reopened Friday morning.

The evacuation order for 26 homes in the area of the Flagstaff Fire was rescinded at 3 p.m. Thursday.

Residents have been asked to use caution because it is still an active fire scene with firefighters and heavy equipment moving through the area.

A “soft” road closure remains in place for Flagstaff Road and Bison Drive. Sheriff’s deputies will only allow access to residents with proper identification.

All open space properties west of Broadway/Highway 93 from Flatirons Vista Trailhead north to Boulder Canyon/Highway 119/Canyon Boulevard remain closed.

The Flagstaff Fire has burned about 280-300 acres and was 30 percent contained Thursday morning.

Some 2,500 homes, businesses and schools were at risk of being in the line of fire Wednesday until their pre-evacuation orders were lifted at about 7 p.m.

The Flagstaff House is open for business.
