(KION) The Bureau of Land Management has a new tool to track forest fires in California in time for the fire season.

The agency has created a California Wildfire Dashboard that gives the public live information on forest fires, fire restrictions and track temporary closures.

The dashboard contains maps of active fires and restrictions in force, but also provides information on the number of new fires reported in the last 24 hours, the number of hectares newly burned in the last 24 hours , total number of major fires, total area burned by ongoing incidents, and links to information on state and regional restrictions.
