" Fire Extinguisher is usually ineffective against kitchen fire or electrical fire!"
Fire Blanket is a great alternative to a regular spray type of fire extinguisher, especially for kitchen fires and electrical fires. Many fire extinguishers contain water within the foam.
When a fire breaks out in the kitchen, it’s usually oil or liquid type fires and a spray extinguisher would make it worse. Adding even a small amount of water to these fires causes a fireball explosion that quickly consumes the entire room.
Another common household fire is due to faulty electrical equipment or wiring. Adding water to these fires can cause electric shocks as electricity can be conducted through the water and into the person who is trying to put out the flames.
The best way is to smother these fires by throwing a fireproof blanket over it!
