Are houses built on slopes more likely to be burned down by wildfires?

         Houses built on slopes are more vulnerable to wildfires because fire spreads rapidly uphill. The steeper the slope, the faster the fire spreads. This is because the fire is closer to the fuel on its uphill side, and because wind currents normally blow uphill.
