The last of the evacuees from a forest fire that tore through parts of Peachland, B.C., destroying four houses, were given the all-clear to return to their homes Wednesday, three days after they were forced to flee.

Cooler weather has helped firefighters get a handle on the flames. The evacuation order was partially lifted on Tuesday, but about 416 people remained out of their homes.

Four houses were destroyed by the fire.
