I've been thinking in terms of a masonry exterior and metal roof. Or even a terracotta roof.
I think masonry/adobe/rammed earth walls combined with a tile/terracotta or metal roof and roll-down metal shutters for the windows would probably allow a house to withstand the radiant heat long enough for the fire to move past it.Be an interesting test to run.
