NIST’s new guidance for home and community wildfire protection advises placing combustible objects, such as sheds or woodpiles, a safe distance from not only your home but your neighbor’s as well. The scenario depicted is limited to two properties; however, all adjacent properties should be considered to prevent fires from spreading through communities. If the available area doesn’t allow for ideal spacing, then using fire resistant materials is the next line of defense. Credit: N. Hanacek/NIST
