Rethinking How We Build Homes In Fire-Prone Areas
We can trim forests, regulate activities that cause sparks and flames, and clean out the underbrush around our houses. But we can't stop the wind from blowing, and that turned out to be a huge factor in the devastating fires of September.
With thousands of homes destroyed, it's time for a chat about how we build our houses. Mike Roddy at Butte Built Better advocates building homes with steel studs, not wood, and making homes fire-resistant in other ways.
He is making the case alongside Dominick DellaSalla, forest expert and chief scientist at Wild Heritage, who has studied wildfire extensively. They visit to talk about not repeating the practices of the past.
