Small Kitchen Fire Extinguished by a Homeowner in Moorhead?

4/5/2022 (Permalink)

A person uses a fire extinguisher to put out a fire in an oven. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Clay County.

Our team in Moorhead knows how effective portable fire extinguishers can be for putting out small, contained fires. Here is some information about fire extinguisher safety and use from the National Fire Protection Association:

  • To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:
  • Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you, and release the locking mechanism
  • Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire
  • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly
  • Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side
  • For the home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire, but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out
