Live in the city, where the houses are close, but not on top of each other.
Everyone has a small yard.
A couple times last year one of the neighbors prepared their charcoal BBQ
using what 'I thought' was an excessive amount of lighter fluid. I say, 'I
thought', only because the fumes from the pre-light were quite powerful.
Didn't say anything about it and at this point I'm not sure who the culprit
is. However, it started up again today and I'm not in the mood to put up
with it for another summer.
Outside of lighting my neighbor's house on fire, which approach might be
1. Tell him/her to stop it all together as it poses a heath risk and is
quite annoying? If he refuses call the fire department.
2. Ask how much fluid he is using. If his response seems excessive, then
tell him to cut back. Again, if the odors seem excessive, then call the
fire or health department.
I get the feeling he's using about a quarter of a can. I'm only judging by
the strength of the fumes.
