Made refugees by fire, hundreds of evacuated residents of Los Alamos solemnly returned Sunday in convoys of yellow school buses to the seared homes, blackened yards and still-smoking vistas of their abandoned town. The 7,000 people of neighboring White Rock, which was undamaged, were allowed to go home. The buses left Santa Fe for Los Alamos throughout the day, carrying counselors, clergy and 360 residents to the community of 18,000 that was emptied of life four days earlier.

The thousands of people streaming back into fire-devastated Los Alamos on Tuesday found smoke still lingering in the air and most stores closed or without such staples as meat and vegetables. It was a city entirely different from the one they had left just six days before, when they fled ahead of a wall of flames that raced up the sides of canyons and left 405 families homeless. The Los Alamos nuclear weapon laboratory remained closed, and pockets of the town remained without gas or electricity.

New Mexico State guard Kenny Travis hit an eight-foot bank shot while almost lying on the floor and then added a free throw as the Aggies hung on for a 59-57 Pacific Coast Athletic Assn. overtime victory over Cal State Fullerton Thursday night at the Pan Am Center. But that was hardly the big story and just a taste of the excitement. For Fullerton (3-6 in the conference and 10-11 overall), this was the kind of day that would make any coach consider quitting.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Marking the worst fire season in Colorado history, three major blazes are burning uncontrolled in the Rocky Mountain state, destroying hundreds of homes, prompting mass evacuations in Colorado Springs and threatening the city of Boulder 100 miles away. For weeks, Colorado has been in a state of siege as the mammoth High Park fire raged unhindered in mountain wilderness west of Fort Collins, destroying 257 rural homesteads and cabins, while residents of cities and suburbs to the east held their collective breath and prayed that the flames would not reach them.
