From experience houses burn down from sparks blowing into the attic through the vents. We have ash on the property from the simi fire. Tommorrow I am back to work after some rest and relief (fs 18s, lafd, assessment engine). My wife has instructions to always stuff the attic vents with tin foil. Also, back fire your house when the fire is about 1/2 mile away.
