There are several ways in which a house can burn during a bushfire—radiant heat ahead of the fire front, burning debris and embers falling on the building and direct flame contact.
Research has shown that the biggest cause is sparks and embers landing on or near your home that can trigger a fire well before and for hours after the bushfire has passed.
