If you're like many modern homeowners, you sometimes find yourself worrying about wildfire activity endangering your family and perhaps even damaging or destroying your home. This feeling is completely understandable, particularly if you live in an area that's been impacted by increasing wildfire activity in recent years. Wildfires are started in a variety of ways, such as people lighting off fireworks, careless disposal of smoking materials, lightning strikes, out-of-control campfires, and even the exhaust systems on vehicles igniting dry grass and brush when the driver pulls over to the side of the road or otherwise drives in an area where dried out vegetative matter is present.
