I leave my dogs in the house and on the verandah. I have thought about fire and it does worry me but I have no other choice. Too many livestock around and my dogs are very athletic and can clear my yard fences easily if they choose so they need to be secure. Living on a farm the distances between neighbours is large. I just make sure most things are unplugged and I have RCDS installed. Other than that I have to hope it never happens. On days of severe fire danger I usually stay at home if I can. I also do a fair bit of work during winter burning and clearing away and reducing fuel loads.
