Re: It doesn\'t look like my house is going to burn
Sounds like you're safe my friend. I was part of a clean-up crew after a forest fire about 10 years ago now, I had been doing silvaculture work, and pulp cutting at the time, so we got called in to cut trees, and clean up the burnt ones. It was dirty miserable work, and I was black from head to toe at the end of every day. Cutting black, burnt trees with a chain saw, is just plain messy.
Anyhow, the fire did level a lot of forest around several houses, and although the fire dept were able to save the houses, the heat alone from the nearby blaze, melted the vinyl siding on the houses...pretty nasty stuff.
