Nearby WildfireThere was a wildfire about a mile from my home. Is there a test I can use to find out if there is inside and outside damage to my home?

My husband, a retired firefighter says a fire that distance away should not do damage, except soot which should only be on the outside unless you had your windows or door open. If you think it was hot enough, check you roof shingles and any air filters of air going from outside to inside like furnace filter, air conditioner filter. If they smell of smoke or look sooty, clean or change the filters, maybe a couple of times. It was too far away for any damage according to his 20+ years of experience. Check with Lands and Forests or the local fire hall if you are still uncertain.
