How are fires classified?

Depending on the agent that fuels the fire, fires are classified into different categories: Class A (regular combustibles), Class B (flammable gasses and liquids), Class C (electrical equipment), Class D (combustible metals), and Class K (cooking fats and oils). Different fire extinguishers are specially designed to fight different classes of fires.
