POST, OR -- Fire managers will take advantage of today's nice weather to continue prescribed burns in the Mawry Mountains southeast of Prineville.  The West Mawry Jackpot Burning project will cover about 500 acres 12 miles southeast of Post, within the Ochoco National Forest.  Crews already burned about 170 of those acres in February, before snow halted the project.

 

Plans also call for jackpot burning on the Crooked River National Grassland this spring. The Grassland Jackpot Burning project will cover about 500 acres on units between 5 and 15 miles southwest and southeast of Madras.  The goals for both projects include improvement of wildlife habitat and range conditions, and the reduction of hazardous fuels.  

 

Light smoke will be visible in the area during the burn, but should not impact traffic.
