I've checked, and the Fire Regs are on page 9 of the onsite booklet:

"5. Fires & torches ARE NEVER to be left unattended.
6. Elevated, open flame devices must be stable and be placed
at a distance equal to their height plus one foot from any structure.
For example, a 20 foot high propane torch may not be
placed within 21 feet of any structure and a 4 foot tall "tiki"
torch must be 5 feet from any structure.
7. Open flames and combustion heat devices (e.g.: candles,
fires, space heaters) are not to be operated inside of any enclosed
structure or tent."

There's enough language there to not permit Torches Branle, unless someone 
wants to bring those faux-candles that use a flickering christmas light.
