It seems I saw a news article recently discussing the damages incurred by homes depending on their date of construction. The gist was, units built more recently (ostensibly to more comprehensive codes) generally were substantially more likely to have gotten through the fire with less damage than older homes. As I recall, the news article used 2008 as the break point year. Homes built 2008 or later were more likely to survive than older homes.
Does anyone have more details or perhaps a link to the report?
