Houses inside of the Fourmile Canyon Fire near Boulder, Colorado in the wildland-urban interface.  The 7,000 acre fire claimed nearly 170 houses in the first days of the blaze.  Several of the houses that were saved had properly prepared their land for the potential of wildfire, including building with fire resistant materials as well as preparing defensible, fuel-minimized spaces in the areas surrouding the structure.
