FIRE RESISTANT HOMES
There are many ways which homes can be built to be much more resistant to fires, or even fire-proof. With the strict energy performance requirements of new homes and buildings, we recommend building homes out of insulated concrete forms (ICF). These forms are cost effective, highly efficient, non-toxic, and their 8" solid concrete core is very resistant to damage from fire. We also recommend building the roof out of concrete, as many fires are started from burning embers landing on the roof and igniting the structure.
Here are some links which explain and provide examples of homes which are fire resistant and beautiful:
