# Wildfire Tracker API v1
The wildfire tracker API provides ongoing wildfire updates for the areas of interest you define.
We offer 2 main products:
- Locate & Track API
- Wildfire Area API - coming soon
# Locate & Track API
You can pull updates on-demand without being limited to certain areas. As the fires move, so does the perimeter track, ensuring a timely and updated solution you can trust.
# Current Conditions
# Request Parameters
Returns current active wildfire current conditions for a specific location
While making an API request some parameters are required while some are optional.

|lon||float||Longitude (lon) specifies the east-west position of a point in a range between -180 to 180||Required|
|radius||integer||Desired radius from the location provided (lat,lon) |
Min Value: 5 KM / 3 Mile
Max Value: 100 KM / 62 Mile
|key||String||Your BreezoMeter API key location||Required|

See Features List below
Note: You must separate every two features with a comma, and use the exact naming convention as shown in the possible values.
Example: fire_size, %containment, discovery_date
A request to get the status of all the current wildfires within a designated radius (20 km) of the specified location (48.857456, 2.354611) using the default request parameters settings.
# Response Data Fields
Locate & Track API provides a list of response fields for each wildfire, based on the following statement: "Get all the fires around your chosen objects".
You will need to submit a single API request and supply the object's input to receive the following response fields (included by default with all packages):
For the list of the data fields returned with each feature, see Features List
# Features List
You will get a list of all the wildfires within the specified radius of the designated location, and receive in-depth information about each wildfire’s boundaries, distance, fire name, start date and size.
Here are the various supported features:

# Unit Systems
This table lists Locate & Track API fields and the units in which they are measured or calculated according to the Metric and the Imperial systems.
By default, requests return Metric measurement. Requests can be customized by setting the request’s units parameter.
