Putting Water On Electrical Fires
If this worst should happen, and you end up with a fire which has started from an electrical source, then the last thing you want to do is pour water on it. Keep an electrical rater fire extinguisher on site if you’re worried about electrical fires and use that instead of water in times of emergency. If you don’t have one nearby, you can turn off your electrical power and smother the fire with a wool blanket. If you aren’t sure, evacuate your home and call the fire brigade.
