Chris Arai and his fireproof home
Engineer Chris Arai has spent more than 15 years fireproofing his
Sonoma County home, outfitting it with a gas-powered sprinkler system,
flame-repellant window gel, and a concrete basement he poured by hand.
When the Kincade Fire ripped through Arai's rural community last year, the
engineer's home was the only one that survived the blaze.
