What type of fire extinguisher is best for my home?
A multi-purpose fire extinguisher is best for the home. Look for and extinguisher with a rating of at least 2A:10B:C on the label. These types of extinguishers can be used on any type of fire commonly occurring in the home. They will often be labeled “ABC” or “All Purpose” and can be purchased in most large home-improvement or hardware stores.
