Wildfires in Israel are growing in size and frequency, with the worst fire in years in August, which burned through more than 4,000 acres. To help people stay safe, Israeli innovators have now created a new phone app to track wildfires as they spread. The Jerusalem Post tells us more:

An Israel-made system now provides information about wildfires around the world, tracking their spread to help ensure people’s health and safety.

BreezoMeter, a Haifa-based company that provides data about air quality and pollen counts to consumers in more than 100 countries, said Tuesday that its fire tracking solution is now available for free on its air-quality map on its website. The feature should be available on its free app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, in the coming months.
