Each week, we will share a practical landscaping or building tip from the Village’s Fire Resilient Community Fact Sheet.
Tip 3: Keep sheds and other buildings away from windows. If buildings are closer than 26 feet (8m) apart, install fire-resistant tempered glass windows.
Heat from a wildfire can cause windows to break even before the building ignites. This allows burning embers to enter and start fires inside. Single-pane and larger windows are particularly vulnerable.
