In the past 24 hours the Tasmania Fire Service has responded to more than 60 fires across the state, with 19 still actively burning or being monitored.
TFS incident controller Mark Klop said there were four fires in the Franklin-Gordon Wild River National Park burning, two in the Twelve Trees Range near Strathgordon and two fires north of Lake Gordon.
He said two of the fires were considered contained but the other two were being fought from the air and ground.
"The fires that we're dealing with all are lightning strike originated fires," he said.
"Conditions in the south west are little bit wetter than this time last year, however the areas that we've got these fires are in button grass so even if its wet or dry we get fires that...are wind influenced.
"We're doing spotter flights on a daily basis to ensure that any new fires are identified and also we've got thermal imaging flights being conducted early in the evening across the fire grounds just to identify any hot spots and assist the firefighters."

Fire Minister Mark Shelton said the state's firefighters and Parks and Wildlife personnel had been sent to help efforts in the mainland.
"The rapid rate of response process that the TFS can put into place now is a fantastic thing, and they're jumping straight on top of any fire or any ignition that happens right across of Tasmania," he said.
"Tasmania has somewhere between 12 and 1400 fires every year - it can get up to 1800 fires - so we have fire in our landscape all the time.
"So this year of course we'll see what the fire seasons brings us, but we have very good, career and volunteer, firefighters, that do an excellent job around the state."
