Foam fire extinguishers are suitable for use on class A solid combustible fires (wood, paper, textiles) and class B flammable liquid fires (petrol, diesel, paint, solvents).
A water-based fire extinguisher is a popular choice for Class A fires (combustible materials). Water fire extinguishers work by cooling the fuel and ensuring it burns at a much slower pace until the fire is extinguished.
