Elemental: Reimagine Wildfire A watchable 2023 documentary on Kanopy (e.g. some library systems like Sno-Isle, and KCLS) (also Amazon Prime): https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21840496 Lots of interesting pre- during- and post-fire footage that includes some massive west coast fires during the past four years or so (e.g. with 95 mph winds). It includes some map graphics of where areas treated by cutting trees and removing fuel (like the 2021 Dixie Fire) did not stop the fire, because of extremely dry conditions and high winds. Embers are often a major culprit in igniting homes. They run experiments to determine about 60-feet clearance around a house is optimal to protect a house in the forest. The movie builds toward hardening the home as the main solution (rather than trying to control wildfires). The climatic example is the home of Mary Bradshaw in Elkhorn, Oregon, who had the only home that survived a 2020 fire that wiped out all of her neighbors' homes. She and her husband built a home with a metal roof, no gutters, cement fiberboard siding, a cement porch, closed soffits, and no vegetation against the house.
