NMSU Extension Wildland Fire Specialist Gives Tips for Protecting Homes
A wildland fire specialist from New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension has made acknowledgements towards the vast wildfires set to descend on the state. He explains that many of the houses that may fall prey to the same fires need not to – if only they prepare themselves adequately. Embers, sometimes traveling up to a mile or more, are often responsible for house fires during wildfire season, rather than encroaching flames. By removing or hiding flammable materials from your house, the chances of falling victim to this type of natural disaster is greatly reduced.
