More evacuation orders lifted as crews make progress against CA wildfire

More evacuation orders are being lifted for residents affected by a Southern California wildfire that drove thousands from their homes.
    
The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department announced Sunday residents in the Lytle Creek area will be allowed back to their properties. Residents must show proof of residency to return.
    
At the height of the fire, some 82,000 people were under evacuation orders.
    
Most of those have now been allowed to return home, though a mandatory evacuation order remains in the El Cajon Valley area.
    
Containment of the blaze about 60 miles east of Los Angeles rose to 83 percent overnight.
