I'm being told that if the fire marshall or fire department is notified AND the fire marshall/fire department catches you in the act, they will issue a citation to the owner of the building (your landlord). It's your landlords responsibilty to enforce these things, and I wouldn't be surprised if language exists in your lease regarding this.

Seems like these things are building/property oriented, not individual oriented.

Fire Codes are inforeced by the Authority Having Jursidiction (law enforcement, Fire Department, County officails) it all depends on who has adopted the code. The ONLY thing to do is to call the AHJ (try the fire department) and get the correct information. Beyond that your neighbor is a jerk and this topic has no further discussion till you get clarification from the AHJ.
Yes I was wrong, they can and are enforced. Also - NFPA 1 is a code adopted by the state of california with requirements. And it contains the open flame regulation you mentioned.

I agree that he needs to call the AHJ above all else.

I would look through your lease as well to make sure more laws don't complicate the matter.

Or anyone that represents them such as all members of the department down to the firefighters. The code is very specific in reguards to open flame secton 308.3 of the CA Fire Code. But you need to look at the exemptions in section 308.1 "Exceptions: Fuel burning elemnets of approved appliances shall not be considered as open flame devices" CA Code of regulations title 19 division 1 section 3.25

And yes I am a Fire Captain and I am sitting here at work reading the fire code. I must now go and finish my inspections for the day and enforce the fire code.

Sounds like it is time to invest in an electric system.

I have not read the whole thread so maybe somebody has offered this already. Call the city government and ask what the regulations are for cooking outside.

I bet you are fine.
