The city ordinance prohibits any type of open flame on any balcony, above ground-level, or on any ground-floor patio within 15 feet of a structure where two or more units exist on more than one level. Open flames are prohibited unless each of the separate dwelling units has its own private means of ingress and egress. Fuel storage is also prohibited in such structures.
Electric or gas-fired barbecue grills that are permanently mounted, wired, or plumbed to the building’s gas supply or electrical system and maintain a minimum clearance per manufacturer instructions may be installed on balconies and patios when approved by the Fire Marshal. Please also check with your building management on allowing a mounted unit.
Home owner associations (HOA) and building management may be more restrictive than city ordinance.
