Hi Patrick,

We don’t specifically identify them here in Perth. However, our bylaw (and any other that I’ve heard of) speak to solid fuel (ie wood) and liquid fuel devices are excluded. I would consider tiki torches no different than a propane fire table or a citronella candle.

What department are you from? Unless you are in an MNR district, the local fire service would be the AHJ, not the province.
