That opens up a lot of interesting questions.
What part of the country? If it's a dry climate, it would be good to have a
garden hose or water extinguisher for outdoor fires. Garden sprayers are
much better than nothing.
What kind of fires are common? The only time I really needed an extinguisher
was when I had some gasoline catch fire on a lawn mower. My fault.
Is the fellow (or anyone in the house) a smoker? If so, then a water extg
can be a good idea, as smokers fires often start in bedding, and furniture.
In any case, the old standards still apply. Get the people out of the fire
building. Call FD. Don't let the fire get between you and your exit. Shoot
fast and bug out.
I'm a bit of a junk collector. I've got probably six extinguishers of
various type in my trailer.
If I had only one, I'd choose a 10 pound ABC chemical.
