fire break for carport

In the picture you see the carport. It has a 5/16" plywood ceiling. You can see that the roof for the carport is an extension of the house roof.

In the attic there is only a plywood wall of the same 5/16" sheathing separating the house side attic from the carport side attic. In addition, this combustible divider wall also has a 3'x3' hole cut into it that was used to place a fan.

I know there is a concern when there is a lack of a good fire break with respect to attached garages. Is there also a concern for lack of a good fire break with respect to carports?

Its a 12'x24' carport. Heres both vehicles tucked in. Obviously nobody can get into or out of the passenger side of the Cherokee while they're both parked under there.

You can see the landscape tie bolted to the slab that stops the Dakota from coming too far in. There is another tie in front of the Cherokee to stop it about 6 inches from the wall.
