COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - The most destructive wildfire in Colorado history has been fully contained less than three weeks after it erupted.
According to a statement from the federal incident management team, the 29-square-mile Waldo Canyon Fire was completely encircled by containment lines on Tuesday.
Officials say residents may still see smoke over the next few days as areas inside the perimeter of the fire continue to burn.
The fire killed two people and destroyed nearly 350 houses when it burned into northwest Colorado Springs. The cause is still under investigation.
As many as 32,000 people were evacuated, and President Barack Obama visited the area on June 29.
