Officials lifted more evacuation and pre-evacuation notices for residents near the 416 Fire. Those residents live in the Hermosa area.

The 416 Fire has scorched more than 34,000 acres, and containment is now up to 30 percent.

Officials say the fire may not be fully out until the monsoon season kicks in, but with more rain means more risk of flooding.
