Any vegetation around your home is a fire risk. We’re not saying you should remove all of your plants, but be aware of which plants are closest to the property. Your home could also be at risk if near large areas of grass.
When it comes to fires these are two types of fuel: heavy and fine. Fine fuels are usually used as catalysts for heavy fuels, which burn longer and hotter. Examples of fine fuels are branches, twigs, leaves, dry tree bark, things that easily ignite and can be carried by the wind, such as newspaper, and most things that are thinner than a pencil.
Fires burn faster traveling uphill, and heat from the impending fire can prime anything in the fire’s way, making it easier to burn. Wind can significantly impact the speed at which a fire travels, its direction, intensity, and more.
