Residents forced to evacuate last week in the face of the Stouts Fire were allowed to return to their homes on Sunday.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office on Sunday morning said residents of Upper Cow Creek Road who were on a Level Three GO! evacuation can return to their homes.

The area remains under a Level Two SET evacuation notice. Level Two indicates there is still significant danger to your area, and residents should be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice, the sheriff's office said.
