Class A fire extinguishers are for flammable items like some plastics, cardboard, wood and paper. The amount of water contained in the extinguisher, and the amount of fire it can handle, is indicated by the quantity.

Class B extinguishers are needed for flammable liquids enjoy oil, grease, kerosene together with gasoline. On class B extinguishers, the number represents the square footage of a fire that it can handle.
