39 Fire Triangle Fire safety, at its most basic, is based upon the principle of keeping fuel sources and ignition sources separate. Fire safety, at its most basic, is based upon the principle of keeping fuel sources and ignition sources separate. Classes of Fires: Classes of Fires: –Class A: Wood, paper, anything that would leave ash when burned –Class B: Fuel, petroleum-based fires like gasoline and oil –Class C: Electrical fires that can be put out by cutting the source –Class D: Metal fires that are usually smothered with sand Four things must be present at the same time in order to produce fire: Four things must be present at the same time in order to produce fire: –Fuel or any combustible material –Enough oxygen –Enough heat –A chemical reaction Oxygen, heat, and fuel are frequently referred to as the "fire triangle.” The important thing to remember is: take any of the sides of the triangle away thereby inhibiting the chemical reaction and the fire will be extinguished. Essentially, fire extinguishing agents put out fire by taking away one or more elements of the fire triangle
