It is always better to fight a fire through prevention and early detection. However, with training and practice, adults can use portable fire extinguishers to douse small, contained fires. Extinguishing a small, isolated fire such as in a cooking pan or waste basket may prevent needless injury and minimize property damage.
West Kelowna Fire Rescue offers fire extinguisher training.
