What is the best type of fire extinguisher for my house?
A multi-purpose fire extinguisher is best for the home. Look for the rating to be at least 2A:IOB:C, found on the label. This extinguisher can be used on any type of fire commonly occurring in the home. It will often be labeled “ABC.” You can also check the phone book yellow pages and have an extinguisher company come to your home and make recommendations.
