SuperAdobe (Cal-Earth's material) is also exceptionally fire-resistant. Because Superdobe structures are built out of dirt, barbed wire, and concrete, there just isn't much (other than the trim) to burn in a wildfire.

The domed shell also helps because the structure lacks any valleys or pockets to capture airborne embers that on conventional homes are one of the greatest dangers for home loss during wildfires.
