A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used
to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency
situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control
fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling,
endangers the user (i.e. no escape route, smoke,
explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the
expertise of a fire department. Typically, a fire
extinguisher consists of a hand-held cylindrical pressure
vessel containing an agent which can be discharged to
extinguish a fire.
