Wildfire: Preventing Home Ignitions
Click to view larger screen captures:

"Wildfire! Preventing Home Ignitions" is a 19-minute video available from the Rocky Mountain Research Station. This program tells you how a wildfire can ignite your home. A "home ignition zone," the area that includes a home and its immediate surroundings, determines a home's ignition resistance during a severe wildfire. Some of the areas covered are: how the combustion process causes home ignitions; how some homes are destroyed while others survive; and how your most effective home protection efforts can occur within the "home ignition zone". This program is a product of Jack Cohen's research at the Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, MT and part of Firewise Communities.
