Fire extinguisher is an item in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas primarily used for extinguishing fires, as its name implies, though it can also be used as a weapon. As a weapon, it is quite inefficient, as it principally acts to disorient the target, but will kill a person with prolonged use. The fire extinguisher featured in GTA San Andreas is based off the most common real-world type, the dry chemical stored pressure design. With the exception of during certain missions, the fire extinguisher features an ammunition counter, which can be depleted, similar to weaponry.

Wikipedia has an article on:

There are missions that require the use of the fire extinguisher to get through burning buildings, but otherwise it is relatively useless. After finishing the firefighter missions, the fire extinguisher is especially useless, as the player becomes fire proof. The fire extinguisher can be found in the kitchens of fast food restaurants such as Burger Shot and Well Stacked Pizza, as well as various outdoor locations throughout San Andreas.


The following is a list of locations in which the fire extinguisher spawns in San Andreas.

Los Santos

San Fierro

Las Venturas


  • Outside the small gas station in Whetstone, adjacent to the 24/7 along the main highway, just southeast of Angel Pine

Bone County


  • Strangely, if you kill someone with the Fire Extinguisher, they usually died of suffocation but blood will appear at their body like they were killed by firearms or melee weapons. People that died of suffocation in real life won't have blood dripping out of their body. The same thing also applies to the Spray Can and Tear Gas.
