There are five different kinds of extinguisher which are used to tackle different kinds of fire because one type of extinguisher will never work on all types of fire. You can get more information about these in here:
Water extinguisher: It will be used for those fires which happen due to the burning of paper or wood. People now would like to have a lot of wood made things in their houses which increases the chances of fire as wood and paper will catch fire easily and then can burn other things to.
Foam extinguisher: This is better than water extinguisher because it can be used on fire caused by the liquids like petrol and also can be used for paper or wood inflated fire. This should be used by the professionals only because it may be difficult to handle.
Dry powder extinguisher: Out of all five this is the best extinguisher as it can be used for almost all kinds of fires except the fire caused by the deep fryer pans as stated earlier that no one kind is suitable for all the fires.
Carbon dioxide extinguisher: This can be used for liquid causing fire like from the burning of petrol and also can be used for fires caused due to the burning of electric elements like computer. These are more suitable for petrol pumps and offices.
Wet chemical extinguisher: This will be used for industrial use where the fire will burn on very high temperatures due to the wide area covering from paper or wood. But can be used in household fire too where the fire is due to the fryer burning and will be unable to cope from any other extinguisher type.
