Fire is a major risk in thatch homes and once it catches alight, a home can burn to the ground in less than 7 minutes.
If your lapa / thatch is within 4,5m from the boundary or within 9m from any other building on the same site, you are required by law to Fire Protect as well as obtain a Rational Design (Fire Design) issued by a competent person. In addition, any other thatch building that is enclosed also needs fire protection.
