An interesting perspective of wildfire from inside a home. The video clearly shows flames impacting a window. The exterior window pane fails (1:52), followed shortly by flames, smoke and embers to entering the structure. Note the subsequent times of failure. Can you tell how many panes of glass this window had? leave us a comment below!
Keeping vegetation cleared well away from windows is an important measure to consider while designing or maintaining your landscape for wildfire risk. Having 5ft of non-combustible area around the base of your home is the recognized standard, and a foundation of defensible space.
