LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) — A smoldering wildfire in Riverside County southwest of Lake Elsinore is 73 percent contained.

Fire officials lifted the last evacuation orders for homes in the Decker Canyon area Tuesday evening, but travel through the area on Ortega Highway remains limited to residents with law enforcement escorts.

The fire erupted Monday and burned more than 1,100 acres.

Full containment is expected by Friday.
