Grilling season may be nearing a close, but grills on apartment building balconies are still a problem. It was a noticeable problem this summer, Tomah Fire Chief Tim Adler said. "It's not just this summer, it's every year," he said. "We understand that if you move into an apartment that has a balcony you want to grill out ... but it's the landlord or property manager's responsibility to educate the people that they're not allowed to do this." Adler said it's against the city's fire code for anyone to have any hibachi, gas, fire or charcoal grills or similar devices cooking, heating or otherwise on balconies or overhangs within 10 feet of any structure.
