The Fire Extinguisher is filled with a chemical under pressure which smothers flames. It can be used on all types of fires (wood, petroleum, electric, etc.) and is reusable. Recharging the extinguisher costs Cr20.

Most often found as compressed gas tanks that operate either by spraying a heavy gas or a foaming agent. Higher TL versions may utilize more radical methods to extinguish a fire. It should also be noted that some classes of fire, such as electrical or chemical fires, require a specific type suppressant in order to extinguish them.
