From the text... 'Wildand-urban interface (W-UI) fires are a significant concern for federal, state, and local land management and fire agencies. research using modeling experiments, and W-UI case studies indicates that home ignitability during wildland fires depends on the characteristics of the home and its immediate surroundings. These findings have implications for hazard assessment and risk mapping effective mitigations, and identification of appropriate responsibility for reducing the potential for home loss caused by W-UI fires.' © by the Society of American Foresters.
