The number of structures threatened by the blaze had been reduced significantly to 1,630 as of Thursday evening, and a number of mandatory evacuation orders had been lifted or downgraded to evacuation warnings.

On Wednesday, the entire town of Windsor was one of the areas downgraded to an evacuation warning, meaning residents could return to their homes at their own risk.
