Electrical Fires

If an electrical fire should occur in your home, do not attempt to put it out with water, as you will run the risk of electrocution. Make sure you own a fire extinguisher that is rated for class A, B, and C fires. These will be able to handle electrical fires as well as fires involving combustible materials. Also, make sure that you and the members of your household know how and where to shut off the electricity in your home.
