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'.
