Hot weather and tinder dry conditions continue to plague personnel fighting BC wildfires.
Kevin Skrepnek of the BC Wildfire Service says lightning was behind most of the 17 fires sparked Monday with another 11 fires added to the books by midday Tuesday.
However, Skrepnek says Friday could bring some relief.
Health officials expanded a smoky skies advisory to the Northwest Monday, including Smithers and Burns Lake.
There have been reports of haze around Terrace as well.
