A neighbor was having a bonfire in front of his apartment; the flames were about two to three feet high. There was no fire pit; he was doing it in a small barbecue grill. I was concerned about the proximity to the apartment and dry foliage.
I would like to know if it's legal or not and where can I find the fire codes pertaining to this?
Here is the fire code: https://www.lafd.org/fire-prevention/fire-code

The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.

Speak to your apartment manager about this .
