This little unit SAVED my neighbors house from a 2-story fire., May 10, 2012
By  MR, Texas
This review is from: Kidde FA110 Multi Purpose Fire Extinguisher 1A10BC (Tools & Home Improvement)
I purchased this fire extinguisher in 2001, and it has sat on my kitchen counter ever since. On March 17th, 2012, my next door neighbor was outside his house and VERY FOOLISHLY poured gasoline from a full 2.5-gallon container onto a pile of hot smoldering wooden logs. Of course the can exploded and it landed against the outside of his 2-story house. The house is wood frame house with painted wood siding. At this point he was on fire, so he rolled on the ground to put himself out. He ended up with 3rd degree burns, but his next action was to get up and come find me. I was working outside raking leaves when I heard him screaming. By this time the fire is raging against the outside of his house. The flames were about 8-10' wide against the side of his house and touching the top of his 2nd story gutter. As he was panicking and calling 911, I quickly retrieved the small Kiddie fire extinguisher from my kitchen and ran towards the blaze. At this point I am thinking I am shooting a bb-gun at a freight train, as there is no way this little extinguisher is going to do anything about this massive roaring fire. HOLY COW was I wrong... In a 4-5 second blast of fury, this little bast*rd reduced that overwhelming massive blaze to a 3' small and manageable fire. I put out the rest with a garden hose. The fire truck arrived 10-min later...


Bottom Line - this is one powerful punch in a small package. It proved that it can function effectively way outside its intended parameters. I highly recommend this device as it most definitely saved my neighbors house from certain destruction.

The Kidde FA110 Multipurpose Fire Extinguisher is UL rated 1-A:10-B:C, and it is designed to fight basic fires common to the home, including those involving fabrics, plastics, wood, flammable liquids, and electrical equipment. It is fitted with an easy-to-read pressure gauge that tells you the fire extinguisher is charged. A clear instruction label clearly shows the steps required to operate the extinguisher.

Multipurpose Protection for Your Family and Home
This fire extinguisher contains a multipurpose agent that fights Class A, Class B, and Class C fires. Class A fires involve common combustibles, such as wood, paper, cloth, rubber, trash, and plastics. Class B fires involve flammable liquids, solvents, oil, gasoline, paints, lacquers, and other oil-based products. Class C fires involve energized electrical equipment, such as wiring, controls, motors, machinery, and appliances.
Recommended by Fire Experts for Proven Protection
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends at least one primary protection fire extinguisher for each level of the home. A primary protection fire extinguisher should have a fairly large capacity and must be UL Rated 2-A:10-B:C or higher. In addition to your primary protection, you should also have UL rated supplementary protection fire extinguishers for additional protection or specific hazards. You should not have to travel more than 40 feet to reach an extinguisher.
After ensuring you have enough primary protection fire extinguishers, place 1-A:10-B:C rated multipurpose fire extinguishers as needed for supplementary protection in bedrooms and living areas.
This supplementary protection fire extinguisher meets the recommendations and needs of:
  • The National Fire Protection Association: the NFPA 10 Standard for Fire Extinguishers
  • Underwriters Laboratories (UL): the independent testing lab for fire safety products
  • Professionals: for more than 90 years, industry leaders, the military, airlines, and firefighters have relied on Kidde fire extinguishers
The Right Solution for an Emergency Situation
In an emergency situation, you need a proven technology: a UL-rated fire extinguisher with a handle, a visible pressure gauge, and enough size and capacity to put out a common fire. These features are what makes a fire extinguisher the tool of choice for true fire suppression. Many aerosol can fire products may not be as reliable for fire protection, because they have a short shelf life (only three years in many cases), they do not provide a gauge to verify readiness, and they aren't UL rated. If you are able to react to a small fire when it starts, chances are good that you can stop the fire with the right type of fire extinguisher. Always make sure your extinguisher is pressurized and close at hand for emergency use.


Built to Last and Easy to Use
This Kidde Fire Extinguisher is durable and easy to use. The fire extinguisher is warranted for six years, and its metal pressure gauge helps ensure that the fire extinguisher is charged and ready for use. This extinguisher is durable and corrosion resistant, featuring a rust- and impact-resistant nylon handle and a light-but -durable aluminum cylinder. The sure-grip handle and operating lever make the extinguisher less likely to slip from wet or oily hands and easier to operate for people with arthritis or weakness of the fingers. A large bilingual nameplate on the extinguisher provides easy-to-read instructions for use during a fire.

From the Manufacturer

Protect your home with Kidde FA110 Multi Purpose Fire Extinguisher 1A10BC. We recommend at least one fire extinguisher for every 600 square feet of living space. This fire extinguisher contains monoammonium phosphate, a dry chemical extinguishing agent that is nontoxic, inhibits re-flashing of the fire, costs less and is more effective than carbon dioxide, and is not easily dispersed by air currents. Note: Not recommended on computers or similar equipment. Easy to use on a fire: just remember the "P-A-S-S" method. Pull the pin on the fire extinguisher, Aim the fire extinguisher at the base of the fire (stand 6 feet from the fire), Squeeze the handle of the extinguisher, and Sweep the extinguisher left to right while aiming at the base of the fire.
