According to the Brick Industry Association (BIA), brick homes offer a one hour fire rating and will resist wind blown penetration of a wood 2x4 at up to 80 mph.

On the other hand according to the BIA, vinyl siding cannot provide one hour fire resistance by itself. It can emit potentially harmful fumes when burned, and 2x4 goes through vinyl at just 34 mph.
