Hot weather and lightning strikes continue to see fires ignite across the territory.
Seven new fires were reported Monday near Ross River and Watson Lake.
One was only 20 kilometres from Ross River. Air tankers, helicopters and firefighters were dispatched to fight the blaze.
Two large fires were discovered 200 kilometres east of Watson Lake, with sizes estimated at 4,000 and 2,000 hectares.
There are currently more than 30 active fires in the territory, but most are in wilderness areas and do not pose a threat to communities or structures, said George Maratos with Wildland Fire Management.
Haze visible in Whitehorse Tuesday could have been caused by any number of fires in Yukon, Alaska and northern B.C., he said.
There are currently no fires threatening the area.
The fire previously burning near Lake Laberge is not completely out but has been fully contained by firefighters, said Maratos.
Forty-five B.C. firefighters continue to help fight Yukon’s priority fires.
More fires are expected to ignite over the coming days.
