The BC Wildfire Service says there have been 11 new fires in the Kamloops Fire Centre since Friday.
Among those is one fire of note, the Dry Lake fire burning northwest of Princeton. That fire is currently measured at 21 hectares and has caused evacuations in the area. Its suspected cause is lightning.
Two fires closer to Kamloops are under control, including the Mount Boysse fire near Chase and another on Robbins Range Road.
Another fire, started Monday night, is burning north of Sicamous. Its suspected cause remains unknown.
Prior to the last week of July, there were just 218 wildfires and 714 hectares burned in the province this season.
Those figures can be compared to previous complete season averages. The current five-year average is 797 fires and 165,724 hectares burned, and the 25-year average is 757 fires and 60,199 hectares burned.
By either metric, 2020 has so far been a quiet fire season.
