How to put out a kitchen fire

There are 5 Classes of fire extinguishers. Every home should have at least one fire extinguisher.  Here’s a list of the classes and their uses:

  • Class A extinguishers are for ordinary combustible materials such as paper, wood, cardboard and most plastics. The numerical rating on these types of extinguishers indicates the amount of water it holds and the amount of fire it can extinguish. Geometric symbol – green triangle
  • Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, kerosene, grease and oil. The numerical rating for class B extinguishers indicates the approximate number of square feet of fire it can extinguish. Geometric symbol – red square
  • Class C fires involve electrical equipment, such as appliances, wiring, circuit breakers and outlets. Never use water to extinguish class C fires – the risk of electrical shock is far too great! Class C extinguishers do not have a numerical rating. The C classification means the extinguishing agent is non-conductive. Geometric symbol – blue circle
  • Class D fire extinguishers are commonly found in a chemical laboratory. They are for fires that involve combustible metals, such as magnesium, titanium, potassium and sodium. These types of extinguisher also have no numerical rating, nor are they given a multi-purpose rating – they are designed for class D fires only. Geometric symbol – yellow decagon
  • Class K fire extinguishers are for fires that involve cooking oils, trans-fats, or fats in cooking appliances and are typically found in restaurant and cafeteria kitchens. Geometric symbol – black hexagon

If the fire is large or spreading fast, evacuate the residence immediately, then call emergency to report the fire.
If you have a fire in your oven, close the oven door and turn off the heat to smother the flames.
For fires on wood, paper and cloth, use water or a Class A fire extinguisher to douse the flames. Place small objects in the sink to help contain the fire.To prevent future fires, always keep your stove, oven and hood clean, and avoid overloading outlets or circuits with too many appliances.
For small grease fires, throw baking soda over the flames or use a Class B fire extinguisher.
In general, try to put out a fire if it's small. But if the flames begin spreading, do not remain in the kitchen.
