Summer Is For Grilling...But Not On Balconies

 

Who doesn't love the smell of summer grilling this time of year?

There are probably very few households that don't own some kind of grill for outdoor cooking.

But in Baltimore, fire codes prohibit the use of electric, charcoal, gas grills, hibachi, deep fryers or other fuel heating devices on any apartment or condominium balcony. It must be 15 feet away from these dwellings. 

Have a wonderful summer but...be safe

Check out more information at Baltimore County Fire Safety

We don't have to have it spelled out in our condo and HOA rules.

It is spelled out in our County Law!

No grilling on Baltimore Balconies

This law does not pertain to single family and townhouses.
