Overland Park Fire Department praises stovetop fire extinguishers

The devices, about the size of a food can, are fastened by magnets inside the hood over the range. When activated by a flame, they release a powder similar to that in a canister fire extinguisher. They can save lives and limit property damage, as a local apartment complex can attest after a Sunday blaze.
