In this July 12, 2016 photo, fire damage is viewed from a Colorado National Guard Blackhawk helicopter after four days battling the blaze, outside Nederland.

The Cold Springs Fire is 80 percent contained and crews hope to have it completely contained by Thursday evening. The last remaining evacuees are expected to be able to return home then.

Two men accused of accidentally starting the fire by not fully extinguishing their campfire were charged Wednesday with fourth degree arson. It carries a penalty of up to 12 years in prison.

In southern Colorado, people are still evacuated because of the Hayden Pass Fire burning near Coaldale. New fires are also burning in the Durango area and in Eagle County near Sylvan Lake State Park.
