1. Liquified Gas - STOP-FYRE is in this category, and is effective on A, B, and C fires.
2. Dry Chemical Powder - The most common fire extinguisher available. It contains a corrosive powder, ammonium phosphate, which can be used to extinguish class A, B and C fires.
3. Foam - Effective on various classes of fire depending upon foam type. Do not use on class C fires due to high water content.
4. Water - Effective on class A fires only. (You must add antifreeze to them in cold climates because otherwise they can freeze in the wintertime and break from the water expanding during freezing.) Do not use on class B or C fires.
