Water extinguishers - for A class fires

Water extinguishers cools burning material by absorbing heat from burning material. Effective on class A fires, it has the advantage of being inexpensive, harmless, and relatively easy to clean up

Spray foam extinguishers - for A and B class fires

Applied to fuel fires as either an aspirated (mixed & expanded with air in a branch pipe) or nonaspirated form to form a frothy blanket or seal over the fuel, preventing oxygen reaching it. Unlike powder, foam can be used to progressively extinguish fires without flashback.

Co2 extinguishers - for electrical fires and A, B and C class fires

displaces oxygen (CO2 or inert gases), removes heat from the combustion zone. They are labelled clean agents because they do not leave any residue after discharge which is ideal for sensitive electronics and documents.

Dry powder extinguishers - for electrical fires and A, B and C class fires

This is a powder based agent that extinguishes by separating the four parts of the fire tetrahedron. It prevents the chemical reactions involving heat, fuel, and oxygen and halts the production of fire sustaining "free-radicals", thus extinguishing the fire.

Wet chemical extinguishers - for F class fires

Wet Chemical (potassium acetatecarbonate, or citrate) extinguishes the fire by forming a soapy foam blanket over the burning oil and by cooling the oil below its ignition temperature. Generally class A and K (F in Europe) only, although newer models are outfitted with misting nozzles as those used on water mist units to give these extinguishers class B and C firefighting capability.
