How does a fire blanket put out the fire? When correctly draped over a fire, the fire blanket starves the fire of oxygen, leading to rapid extinction. Also our fire blankets can be used if a person has caught fire, by wrapping it around them. Fire blankets are suitable for use on kitchen fires which originate from chip pans and saucepans. As well as this, fire blankets are ideal for use on waste paper bin and clothing fires. This is because when used, the fire blanket stops the supply of oxygen to the burning material and extinguishes the fire.
