WARM SPRINGS, OR, (KPTV) -

A fire that started Saturday night just north of the Kah-Nee-Ta Resort is 75 percent contained and predicted to be 100 percent under control by this evening.

Early reports estimated the burning area to be 350-500 acres. A size reassessment of the fire puts it about 169 acres with no projected growth.

The fire may be declared controlled by 8 p.m. this evening and will go into patrol status.

Early investigation indicates the fire was probably human-caused.
