Question:

Which of the following types of fires should you NOT attempt to extinguish with water?

A
Explaination

Never attempt to extinguish an electrical fire with water. Water can conduct electricity. If you are holding a fire extinguisher that is spraying water on an electrical fire, you may receive a fatal electrical shock. Instead, use a fire extinguisher that is rated at least C (nonconducting), such as carbon dioxide or dry chemical.
