Hi John, We have a similar situation at our college studio, which was built about 3-4 years ago. It's a beautiful studio and is supposed to be 'state of the art'. Inspections passed and all was fine until we got a new fire marshall. He red tagged it and claims the raku kiln needs to be 50 feet from any building, etc. Where can I find reference information to give him 'gentle education' as you say to get our kiln back on?
