ABC Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher 

The Fourth of July is one of the biggest holidays on the American calendar, sharing top billing with Christmas and the releases of iPhones and Star Wars movies. This year, we'll collectively spend billions on backyard barbecues, break out American flags (and flag-bedecked gear) and attend fireworks shows. City-run fireworks displays tend to be run by professionals, giving up the biggest bangs, but plenty will take to the streets to fire off a few of their own. It's a blast for kids and adults, but according to the National Fire Protection Association, fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires a year that kill three people, injure 40 more, and cause $43 million in property damage. In 2017, 12,900 people were admitted to emergency rooms with firework-related injuries. While it may seem borderline sacreligious to suggest buying a fire extinguisher ahead of the Fourth of July, that's what we're doing this year. Absolute Fire in Boise sells ABC Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishers—the perfect weapon against the accidental blaze. They weigh between 2-½ and 20 pounds, and run from $30 to more than $90. The most popular is the 5-pounder, which costs $44 plus tax.
