Fire growing near Dooley Highway

A fire official was requesting help from air tankers and bulldozers early this afternoon to slow a wildfire burning near the Dooley Mountain Highway about 15 air miles south of Baker City.

The blaze, estimated at 12 to 15 acres, is on the Burnt River side of the Dooley Mountain summit.

It is burning on the ridge that divides Glasgow Gulch and Mill Creek, in an area scorched by the Cornet fire in the 1980s. The blaze is about two miles northeast of the junction of the Dooley Mountain Highway and the Bridgeport Road.

Fire officials had not confirmed the cause of the fire as of 1 p.m. today. There were thunderstorms with lightning in the area Sunday and early Monday.
