Fire Extinguishers
            The Science of Fire
   Fires need three things to start and to continue to burn:
                              •Fuel
                            •Oxygen
                              •Heat

   These three items are part of the fire triangle. Removing or
disrupting one of the points will prevent the fire from starting or
                     will extinguish the fire.
