How to reduce the vulnerability of fences

  • Replace the combustible portion of the fence near the home with a noncombustible section. The noncombustible section should be a minimum of 5-feet long.
  • Remove vegetative debris that can accumulate at the base of the fence on a regular basis. Do not use fences as a trellis for plants because plants can create and trap ignitable vegetative debris.
