This photo from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website shows a Kidde plastic handle fire extinguisher. Including the death, the CPSC says there have been 391 reports of extinguishers failing to work properly or of nozzles coming off, resulting in 16 injuries that included smoke inhalation and minor burns. Chief: "The extinguisher is going to be valuable in case your exits are blocked or if it's a small fire you are going to be able to handle quickly".

The Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) reminds all Manitobans to check the fire extinguishers in their homes, offices and vehicles following a recall of two specific fire extinguishers manufactured under the Kidde and Garrison brand names.

The government says the extinguishers can become clogged and fail to spray when needed.

PULL the pin to break the seal.

Then SWEEP from side to side until the fire is completely extinguished.

It is best to keep a fire extinguisher no more than 10 feet from the kitchen, the laundry room and the garage.
