Does having defensible space guarantee my house will survive a wildfire?

A. No. Home are being lost in wildfires because of wind-blown embers from miles away, not necessarily because of overgrown trees and vegetation near homes. But having defensible space will improve the odds of your home surviving a wildfire when done in combination with other fire safety measures like home-hardening.
