Fire extinguishers are a must-have essential at home. Fire Extinguishers come in a wide variety of types; each one designed to put out a different kind of fire. A fire extinguisher can keep a small incident from turning into a dangerous emergency. You should, at minimum, have one ABC extinguisher per level of your house. It's best to have one near each of the rooms where fires are most likely to break out, the garage and especially the kitchen.
