Firefighters are starting to tame the Colby Fire in California. But its given little relief to some residents of Glendora who were forced to evacuate their homes. On Friday some 2,800 residents were allowed to return home, only to find smoldering piles of rubble. (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) RAY PARAYNO, MANAGER OF THE MARY IMMACULATE CONCEPCION MISSION, SAYING: "In the 15 minutes that we had to try and gather everything, not much, I even left my wallet and watch and everything, but we tried to get as much as we can." In total, the blaze burned 5 homes, and damaged 17 other structures. The fire started after three men were in the process of building a campfire and used paper to feed the flames. The fire was spread by high winds, officials said. Bail has been set at $500,000 for each of the men -- jailed on charges of recklessly starting the fire.
