This live tracker updates with the latest smoke runoff from each fire, keeping you well informed and out of danger, as well as keeps track of the known fire risk of every tract in all tracked cities. It has currently tracked over 17,000 fires and continues to track tens to hundreds of new active fire incidents every day.
