How to Use a Fire Extinguisher

On a visit to Underwriters Laboratories facilities, This Old House Magazine assistant editor Natalie Rodriguez demonstrates how to use a fire extinguisher. When faced with flames, always remember to PASS: Pull out the pin. Aim at the base of the flame (unless you're dealing with a liquid base that can splatter, as in this scenario. Then you should aim a bit higher). Squeeze the trigger. Sweep back and forth (and continue until you've pretty much extinguished the canister).
