Fire jumps through walls

I've noticed that fire is a little too good at jumping from one cell to another. In the game pictured, I had a power conduit rupture offscreen to the north of the the solar panels. I mostly let it burn, as once I'd stopped it going through my power line it was burning my graveyard (right of solar panels), which handily emptied the graves. However, as you can see, I have a roofed power conduit, with the walls made of granite. The fire somehow jumped through my wall and into the conduit building, and from there to the other side of the building, which would otherwise have provided a natural firebreak.

I know different stuff has different flammabilities, but I have to ask whether my colonists somehow built a roof out of straw, because it seems remarkably flammable!

Fire can spread 2 tiles in every direction, although in this case, I agree it shouldn't jump over the walls, especially not if they are roofed on the other side.
