POST, OR -- The Hammer Fire burning in the Ochoco National Forest is 70% contained at 125 acres, as of Friday morning. Fire managers don't expect any new growth. Crews burned a perimeter around the blaze Thursday night and remain on scene for mop up and patrols.

 

The wildfire was first spotted Wednesday, in the Maury Mountains, south of Prineville. It's burning in dead and down fuels in the Hammer and Florida creek drainages, about eight miles south of Post.
