ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (CBS4) – All of the remaining evacuees of the Fern Lake Fire in Rocky Mountain National Park will be allowed back home on Friday.

The fire flared up last weekend in the midst of strong winds and unseasonably warm temperatures, forcing hundreds of people out of their homes.

One cabin burned in the blaze.

The fire has burned nearly 3,500 acres so far and was listed on Friday morning at 45 percent containment.
