“Did you know??? Between 2016 and 2020 Massachusetts fire departments responded to 427 fires involving grills, hibachis, and barbecues.
These fires caused 15 civilian injuries, 6 firefighter injuries, and $4 million in property damage. The Lakeville Fire Department often encounters gas and charcoal grills on balconies at our apartment buildings.
Just a reminder…grills can only be used on open first-floor porches, decks, or patios if there is an outdoor stairway to the ground, or if the porch is at ground level.
