The wildland fire community is having a hard time wrapping their mind around one truth. Houses as commonly spaced in suburbia or towns will burn building to building.
In normal circumstances the fire department shows up and intervenes. Occasionally a second home is involved prior to arrival of that FD. They just call a second alarm. More of the brothers and sisters show up and put out the fire.
Itís reliable enough that we donít worry about our neighborhoods burning down. Until there a dozen fires in a little town, with a big wildfire burning all over.
The fuel matrix most of us live in as it exists depends on active suppression to keep one fire from burning big chunks of it down each each unwanted ignition.
