Sample Flashpoint Test Question Kitchen fires are one of the primary areas within a home residence where fires can occur. If there is a stovetop fire, which of the following should never be used to extinguish a grease fire? Sodium Bicarbonate Salt Flour D. Wet Chemical Test taker answers: C That is incorrect. Flour “produces” a violent reaction that will cause the fire to spread if used on a grease fire. This ingredient must never be used. In the case of a grease fire, NIFAST recommends several options: baking soda is a sodium bicarbonate, and is known as a regular dry chemical and will extinguish a grease fire. If that is not available, covering a grease fire is another option, but potentially dangerous for skin burns. NIFAST has partnered with Stoveranger to provide homeowners a new, aesthetically designed stovetop fire safety product. This is a non-explosive, non-pressurized automatic stove top fire extinguisher.
