Can I have a grill on my apartment balcony/patio?

Grilling with charcoal, propane or other grills that produce an open flame is not permitted on the decks of multi-housing buildings or within 15 feet of the building. Electric grills are permitted, but the Fire Department would like everyone to use caution even when using an electric grill. A deck fire can extend to the building’s surface quickly and travel to other decks and building openings
