You have to buy the wall mounting for the extinguishers from the furniture store. It's in the featured Items or it is the first item in the kitchen section. Once you buy that and put it in your Sim's home you can just click on the Sim's stove if there is a fire and it will give you the option of buying various extinguishers or you can buy them in the supermarket.

I'm pretty sure they removed it because I've been playing this game for a pretty long time and there was a fire extinguisher but probably because of updates and all they removed it.

I can't find it fails
Guest said: 13th Jun 2016 | REPORT
You can use fire extinguisher if there is a fire by taping the fire
Guest answered:

You buy an extinguisher from the kitchen section at the store. In order to actually use it you need to buy an "extinguisher shelf" which is in the kitchen section of furnishings. Hang up the shelf then if you have a fire it actually allows you to use the extinguisher you bought.

READ:Try looking at other comments all around. You actually don't need to buy one anymore. Now, it's in the sims pockets. Requirements: None. Note: This is years before some comments, EA changes things once in awhile, so ignore some comments in 2012. Try it out. Make a fire. Then, click extinguish fire. Automatically does it.

It doesnt ive done it 10 times
Guest said: 16th Dec 2014 | REPORT
If your stove catches fire.
1st: Make sure one of your sims are not doing anything.
2nd: make sure it's space for the sim to extinguish the fire.
3rd: Click on the stove.
4th: it's going to say Extinguish and 3 min under it.
5th: now your sim automatically has the fire extinguisher and they will put out the fire

Thx that helps a lot
Guest answered:

I've bought extinguishers before at the grocery. Store. But now that I did the new upgrade from the winter freeplay to the freeplay with the pools now the store no longer has extinguishers. It also does not have weed killer.

I have the same problem I need to cook brownies but cannot get an extinguisher to put them out

Guest said: 9th Mar 2013 | REPORT
I was stuck on this for a while and then realised all you have to do is tap the oven and then click 'extinguish'
Guest said: 8th Apr 2013 | REPORT
I can't find it but I could find weed killer in garden section
Guest answered:

If you have the Swimming pool update then just click on the oven and press extinguish and it will do it for you

How long does it take for the fire to spread to the rest of your house?
jenjen182 said: 27th Nov 2013 | REPORT
The fire doesn't spread. It just stays on the stove, as far as I know.
Guest answered:

You just click on the stove when it catches fire and it will prompt you to put it out.

Guest answered:

With the newest updates, it is no longer necessary to buy a fire extinguisher. It is now an option just to extinguish it, making previously owned fire extinguishers completely useless. If you have some, I would highly suggest selling them as they no longer do anything.

Guest answered:

You can also purchase an oven exhaust for your stoves as well.

RMChammer answered:

Really? OK, you DO NOT have to buy ANYTHING!!! So what you do is you choose what you want to cook on the stove that may or may not burn. When it doesn't give you the money, it catches on fire. You click on the stove, or whatever is burning, and then there will be an option to " Extinguish " the fire. Click on that, and it will take three minutes to do so.

Guest answered:

You can get a fire Hydrant from Promotions R Us

Guest answered:

Ohmygosh people!!! JUST TAP THE STOVE AND HIT EXTINGUSH!! Jeez look at the answers before you post sometin

Guest answered:

I get that.. BUT it says BUY one.. I ignore it, it takes my money but doesnt cook what I need it to cook......

Guest answered:

You don't buy an extinguisher. When the oven is on fire, you just click on it, then it will give you the option "extinguish" then click that. Simple!
Hope this helps....

Guest answered:

It automatically extinguishes since the update. Just have your sim press it. It doesn't even take long :D

Yh but how does it go on fire
Pikachu109 ^_^ answered:

You don't have to buy anything just click on the stove and then it says extinguish, just simply click on it and the fire will be put out in a couple of seconds

Guest answered:

You don't need a fire extinguisher. When the oven starts burning just tap on it and it will come up with the button that says 'extinguish fire - 3 mins' press on it and your sim will extinguish the fire.

Guest answered:

Try giving a Sim a Job as a Fireman, then get Him/Her to extinguish the fire. Don't need an extinguisher

Guest answered:

Thanks for helping with this answer, y'all. It's greatly appreciated. For those of you saying the Quest says to buy an extinguisher, it does not. The quest just says to make some Rocky Road, and when you click on the Rocky Road to start Baking, it then tells you to have an extinguisher handy. Just a hint that it may catch on fire. For those of you who know what y'all are talking about, thanks again. :3


Guest answered:

Make sure you're on an Adult. Then simply press on the burning stove and an option will come up saying "Extinguish-3 mins". Just press on that and leave your sim to extinguish it. No fire extinguisher needed!

Guest answered:

Maybe you just buy Fire Station and it will give you that?

Oh man I luv it, people come up with the craziest ideas before just looking for the answer rite at the bottom of the page. The game is very simple and if some people can't figure
It out then maybe they shouldn't be on the internet cause that could b dangerous
Guest answered:

Do you have to out out the fire the second it catches ? If so will it spread to the rest of your house or just stay on the stove ? Thanks

Guest answered:

I've seen all answers, some are funny. Our Sims are like the Gods, it' s amazing what Items they can bring out from their pockets and used them. Fire extinguisher is one of them. Just tap on a oven that is on fire and option for 'Extinguish' should come up. Just tap on it and your sim will bring the fire extinguish out from his or her pocket and use it. It has been like that for long time.

But it doesn't count as achievement - I did it for nearly 50 times!
Guest answered:

None of my sim Neighbors have a fire Hydrant and I don't see one to buy either ... What do I do ?

Guest answered:

Wen the fire is going on you press on the stove & it gives you an option to stop the fire.

Guest answered:

You don't have to buy one you can just cook and organic meal then when it's done it'll show the meal and a fire signal so you click that and it'll ask you if you want to extinguish it which will take 3 minutes
