Should the city ban open-flame grills on apartment porches?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on March 13, 2007
“Yes, they should, because a lot of apartments have porches that are really close together and could catch fire easily. Besides, most of them have some kind of lawn they can use anyway.”
“I think fire holds great responsibility, but I think people are up to the task. I think people really just need to be responsible for their own actions.”
“That’s hard to say. I think most people can handle the risk, but unfortunately there are those out there who cannot.”
“On wooden porches, yes. On porches with a stone or concrete base, I think it should be fine.”
