    Are these allowed under backyard shade structures if less than 120 sq. ft?
    Are flame retardent materials required?

    Building codes mitigate but do not remove all hazards. For most, they are unaware the risk; for some, they don't care.

    "shade structures" is too generic. I suppose some are not safe and some are fine. Carnivals and festivals have food stands with State Fire Marshall approved canopies. I have found a few palm frond messes in back yards.

    At the carnivals I ask that the fryers be not under a canopy no matter what the Fire Marshall has approved. That and the area is saturated with fire extinguishers....big ones

    Spot on Ice! To often outdoor kitchen Mfg'rs claim they aren't required to have contractors licenses to fabricate and install these ( with BBQ, broilers, etc.) but the appliance Mfg's say they shouldn't be installed beneath combustable material. That being the case, if they still do so then who is liable if a fire starts?

    Not the jurisdiction. No permit required = no liability for the AHJ.

    The homeowner and their insurance co. can/will duke it out.
