Cover windows, attic openings, eave vents and sub-floor vents with fire-resistive material such as 1/2-inch or thicker plywood.
In addition, specially designed fire safes with very high fire-resistive ratings are being installed in locations where fire protection may be marginal.
For those in wildfire-prone areas who are planning to build or renovate their homes, Fuhriman recommends they consider fire-resistive construction, such as:
Influence of hydrothermal aging process on components and properties of waterborne fire-resistive coatings--Ying Dong, Guojian Wang, and Qin Su
Any in-service penetration of a fire-resistive wall or floor assembly compromises its ability to function as a passive fire barrier.
The low fire-resistive styrene installation is what is burning fast, so when these facades catch fire, for whatever reason, the flames quickly and completely engulf the entire facade like a roman candle.
Fire walls separating records storage compartments shall be a minimum of 4-hour fire-resistive construction.

The wildfire expert creates a customized action plan to ensure three key elements of structural safety are in place: defensible space, fuel reduction, and use of fire-resistive materials.
says, "At one time, a fire-resistive building was a structure that, barring a collapse or explosion, would confine a fire to one floor.
Firestop systems protect against the passage of flames, deadly gases and toxic smoke through openings that are created for penetrations, joints and gaps in fire-resistive walls, floors and floor/ceiling assemblies.
Structures with non-wood roofs and at least 30 feet of space from brush survived 90% of the time, while structures without these simple fire-resistive features stood only a 15% chance of escaping the flames.
