Preparing For Wildfires
FILE - This combination of photos shows a house on a hillside near Cle Elum, Wash., surrounded by wildfire flames on Aug. 14, 2012, top, and afterwards on Aug. 15, 2012, bottom. A spokesman for the Washington state Department of Natural Resources said the house survived the fire because of the defensible space around the structure with the placement of the driveway and the lack of trees and brush up against the house, preventing flames from reaching it.
