City Code Section 54-3.
Open Fires Restricted.

No person shall ignite or participate in igniting an open fire in, on or over the beaches or public parks within the City of Cape Canaveral including campfires and bonfires.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, lighting a fire for the purpose of cooking is permitted provided such fire is contained wholly within a container or device manufactured for cooking purposes and approved by the City’s Fire Chief or his designee.

Cooking on Balconies
The Florida Fire Prevention Code prohibits any cooking on a balcony of an apartment or condominium.

Storage of L.P. Gas or Gas Grills
The Florida Fire Prevention Code also prohibits the storage or use of L.P. gas in quantities greater than 1 pound above the first floor in any apartment or condominium. Therefore, L.P. gas grills cannot be stored on a balcony. It is important to note that L.P. gas cylinders cannot be stored inside the residential unit or anywhere above the first floor.

The specific code sections are as follows:
