Video Transcript

When a building is burning, firefighters will usually use water or water-based foam to try and put it out. Air-pressurized water extinguishers were once very common, but since they can only be used on Class A fires most of them have been replaced by multi-purpose dry chemical ABC fire extinguishers. Dry chemicals can’t reach burning embers within a stack of paper, piece of wood, pile of sawdust or a mattress… but water can soak these materials and prevent a fire from reigniting.
