Re: Darwin Award Attempt
I see, lets put a bowl of paint thinner out with water. I guess everyone does not know about the different types of fires. For those that do not, never put a Class B or C fire with Water. With a Class B the water only speads the fire.
Class A Fire
paper, textiles, and other ordinary combustibles Class A or ABC Extinguisher
Uses water, water-based chemical, foam, or multi-purpose dry chemical. A strictly Class A extinguisher contains only water.
Class B Fire
liquids, oils, solvents, paint, grease, etc.Class ABC or BC Extinguisher
Uses foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide, to put out the fire by smothering it or cutting off the oxygen.
Class C Fire
Electrical: Live or energized electric wires or equipment.Class ABC or BC Extinguisher
Uses foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide to put out the fire by smothering it or cutting off the oxygen.
