There are 5 classes of fire: Class A, B, C, D, and K.
ABC fire extinguishers can suppress Class A, B, and C fires, hence the name “ABC fire extinguisher.” Class A, Class B, and Class C fires are some of the most common types of Houston household fires. Unfortunately, ABC fire fighting equipment is insufficient for Class D and Class K fires.
Class A Fires are common combustibles such as wood, paper, plastic, cloth, and rubber.
Class B fires are fires fueled by combustible, flammable liquids and gases. Examples of Class B combustible liquids include gasoline, car oil, and oil paints. Class B combustible gases include natural gas used for heating homes and the butane in your grandpa’s cigarette lighter.
Class C fires are fires originated by energized electrical sources. Examples include clothes dryers, space heaters, overloaded power boards, faulty wiring in your walls, and frayed extension cords.
Class C fires have their own classification because energized electrical sources should not be suppressed by water. Water is an electrical conduit, meaning you may electrify yourself if you attempt to fight a fire using water.
