  2.  Aim the nozzle towards the base of the fire.
  3.  Stand approximately 2.5 m (8 ft) away from the fire and squeeze the handle to discharge the extinguisher. If you release the handle, the discharge will stop.
  4. Sweep the nozzle back and for that the base of the fire. After the fire appears to be out, watch carefully since it may re-ignite.
