I have recently issued a Part 15 to the owner of a single family residence, where the clutter was very close to a working gas stove. In this case their was a mental health situation as well, and this way there was some ammunition to start mitigating the situation. I did remove the notice as soon as there was a 3 feet clearance from the stove and a clear path out of the house.
Until recently, we did not issue orders on single family residences, because other than smoke- and CO alarms, the Fire Code does not apply. But we have to keep in mind that the FPPA applies to every building. Obviously every situation is being judged on their own merit and discretion is being used.
