Near Creston, crews are seeing improvements at the Skimmer Horn Mountain fire.
The fire is now 45 per cent contained after only 10 per cent of the blaze was handled Sunday.
Thirty firefighters and four helicopters are battling the fire that is located in difficult, steep terrian.
The Southeast Fire Centre said several other spot-sized fires (less than one hectare) are burning as a result of thunderstorms within the region during the past week.
Most of these fires are located in remote areas and are not affecting nearby communities.
