There were 10 wildfires burning in the north Monday amid warnings of hazardous conditions in the south.

Over the last 24 hours, eight fires have been declared out, while five new fires have been reported.

Meanwhile, the southwestern part of the province was on high fire alert Monday morning.

The dry grasses haven't seen much rain in a while, according to Brent Krayetski, the province's wildland fire coordinator.

"Temperatures are going into the 20s and we're seeing windy conditions which [are] just the right kind of conditions to make any kind of fire take off and run and get out of control," he said.

There have been 67 wildfires in Saskatchewan this year.

The biggest ripped through a large chunk of Grasslands National Park two weeks ago.

It was caused by an agricultural fire that got out of control.
