WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (AP) -- Firefighters are working to contain a wildfire that has burned about 170 acres near the Kah-Nee-Ta Resort on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.

Warm Springs Fire Management spokesman William Wilson says the fire was 75 percent contained by noon Sunday. He says investigators believe the fire was likely human-caused.

The fire was first thought to encompass 350 to 500 acres, but GPS measurements reduced its size. The fire is not expected to grow.

The fire was reported just after 3 p.m. Saturday.
