A home is a family's safe haven, and if a fire breaks out you want to have the best protection possible.  Do you know how your home would fare?  While brick is officially rated as a non-combustible product by many building codes and will not burn during a severe fire test, many homes are made of other materials.

Check out this article and video that he put together and see for yourself what he has to say.  The results may be surprising!
