A house inside of the Fourmile Canyon Fire near Boulder, CO, in the wildland-urban interface. The 7,000-acre fire claimed nearly 170 houses in the first days of the blaze. For several of the houses that were saved, the homeowners had properly prepared their land for the potential of wildfire, including building with fire-resistant materials, as well as preparing defensible, fuel-minimized spaces in the areas surrounding the structure.
