Evacuees from the Fourmile Canyon wildfire west of Boulder went streaming back into non-burn areas this morning to get essential belongings. But now high winds have forced officials to close those neighborhoods once again, and re-order a mandatory evacuation.

Rocky Mountain Community Radio sister station KGNU reports some Boulder residents are being told to prepare for possible evacuations in case the fire spreads, though it's only a precautionary measure.
