BEULAH, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters have been making progress in cooler and calmer weather to contain the wildfire that destroyed eight homes in southern Colorado.

The 8 square mile Beulah Hill Fire was 50 percent contained Thursday, a day after a small group of evacuees became the first to be allowed to return home.

The Pueblo Chieftain (http://bit.ly/2e5p0FG ) reports that residents at a standing-room only community meeting Wednesday evening cheered both pieces of news.

Plans are in the works to return more evacuees.
