What is Ember Attack?
The most common way that houses catch fire during bushfires. Research has shown that this is the cause of 80% of houses lost. Embers can enter gaps in building as small as 1.8mm, igniting timber and other materials such as leaf litter.

  • Embers are burning twigs, leaves abd pieces of debris
  • Ember attack occurs when twigs and leaves are carried by the wind and land on or around houses
  • Ember attak is the most common way houses catch fire during bushfires
  • Embers can land on top of debriss in your gutters and set fire to your house
  • Ember attack can happen before, during and after bushfire
