What kind of fire can be put out with water?

A Paper

Fire extinguishers are classified by the materials they can snuff out. Think “ABC.” Paper, wood, textiles, and some plastics use class A fire extinguishers. Flammable liquids, such as oil or gasoline use class B. Electrical fires use class C extinguishers. All fire extinguishers have labels on them to identify which kind of fire they can be used for.
