fireextinguisherball

fireexitnguisherball is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangers the user (i.e., no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the expertise of a fire brigade.

Typically, a fireexitnguisherball consists of a hand-held cylindrical pressure vessel containing an agent that can be discharged to extinguish a fire.

Fireball manufactured with non-cylindrical pressure vessels also exist but are less common.
