The Radio Tower fire, which burned more than 3,000 acres of mainly private rangeland just southeast of Baker City Thursday, is not official contained, but a BLM official said this morning that "we believe we have it corralled."

The cause of the fire, which was reported about 9:30 a.m., remains unknown, said Carolyn Chad, a spokeswoman at the BLM's Vale District.
