A fire bucket filled with sand provides an additional safety option to fight fires in an emergency. They are often kept next to ovens, barbecues, and other areas where the potential for fires is greatest. Oil fires, including cooking oil fires are resistant to water which can often cause the fire to spread. Sand can be used to help smother most small fires in an emergency. In order to extinguish the fire, the sand in the bucket is dumped on the fire to starve it of the oxygen it needs to stay alight.
Fire buckets should preferably have a lid and be wall mounted. Locate the fire bucket in an easily accessible position, preferably together with a fire extinguisher to form a fire point.
