POST, OR -- Fire crews made significant progress on the Cemetery Fire, burning in the Ochocos. It’s now 50% contained and is estimated at 1,414 acres. Click HERE for the latest from the Central Oregon Fire Information service.

 

Gusty winds, hot temperatures and low humidity pose challenges, but firefighters worked to secure established fire lines, look for hot spots and began mop-up operations on Wednesday. There was no movement of the perimeter overnight and the fire continues to creep through unburned fuels. Grazing and private lands, Greater Sage Grouse habitat and timber remain at risk. 

 

An incident command post is set up in Paulina School, and the fire camp is at the Rodeo grounds in Paulina. The Cemetery Fire started with a lightning storm, early Monday morning.
