Where should fire extinguishers be placed in the home?
Having a fire extinguisher in the home is a good idea. If you have an extinguisher, it should be placed where it is easily accessible. The kitchen and garage are good sites for an extinguisher. However, do not place an extinguisher over the stove or buried in storage in the garage, but rather hang it on the wall between 4 inches and 5 feet from the ground.
