REDDING, Calif. (AP) - Evacuation orders have been called off for several rural homes in Northern California as firefighters took advantage of cool, moist conditions to tame a large wildfire.

State fire officials said Wednesday night that some residents near the fire in Shasta County have been advised they may need to evacuate again, and the blaze that has burned more than 10,000 acres still poses a threat to nearly 70 homes.

Authorities say marijuana-growing activity led to the fire breaking out on Friday and destroying eight homes.

By Wednesday night it was 40 percent contained, up from 20 percent on Tuesday.
