Types of fire

There is alot of confusion on the types of fire. This is a result of the difference between the American and the British standards. The major difference is that in American standards class B are fires in liquids abd gassec abd class C is electrical fire. According to British standard Class B is fire in liquids, Class C is fire in gasses and electrical fire are not considered as a fire type.

  1. I think electricity is not a type of fire but it makes or becomes a reason to start a fire. But special care shall be taken when extinguishing a fire started by electricity and water base extinguisher must not be used on such fires.
