[ARCHIVED] Important Fire Safety Message to All Malden Residents from Fire Chief Bill Sullivan

Malden Fire Patch Logo

As the summer of 2020 rapidly approaches, there are some important home fire safety considerations to be mindful of for the safety and protection of your family and neighbors as well as your property. During the summer months the use of outdoor cooking equipment becomes more common. It is important for Malden residents to remember these important fire safety regulations and practices:

  • Charcoal, wood, electric and propane grills are prohibited on porches, balconies, fire escapes or roofs. 
  • Propane tanks are not allowed to be stored in or on any residential building at any time. 
  • Grills should be kept clean to prevent grease fires. 
  • Grilling should be done on ground level, 10 feet (10’) away from any combustible walls or structures. 
  • Grills should not be used under any overhangs. 
  • Never leave a grill unattended.

Malden is a densely populated city, with older housing stock predominantly constructed of wood frame dwellings which are close together. In addition, please observe the following:

  • Outside burning or open burning is strictly prohibited in Malden as to prevent fires from starting and spreading to multiple houses.
  • Outdoor fireplaces, fire pits and chimenea fireplaces (whether purchased from a retailer or fabricated) are prohibited in the City of Malden. 
  • Any outside burning or open burning is a violation of 310 CMR 7.07(3) (e) and is subject to fines.
