COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Firefighting commanders say the blaze that killed one person and destroyed 346 houses was held at bay overnight and did not grow or destroy any more homes.

Incident commander Rich Harvey says firefighters hope to make more progress Friday after the weather helped their efforts a day earlier.

Firefighters say the Waldo Canyon Fire has burned 26 square miles, down from their earlier estimate of 29 square miles. More precise mapping often results in revisions of size estimates for active fires.

Colorado Springs Police Chief Pete Carey says one person is reported missing at the same home where human remains were found.

Carey says authorities are trying to track down “less than 10″ people who may be unaccounted for.

The cause of the fire hasn’t been determined.
