Firefighting question

Clint Hamblin May 30, 2017 01:22PM EDT

In the Deck Safety & Deck General Module exam there is a question about firefighting that asks: Except in rare cases, it is impossible to extinguish
a shipboard fire by-

a) removing the oxygen
b) removing the heat
c) removing the fuel
d) interrupting the chain reaction

According to the fire triangle, and the fire tetrahedron, if any of these elements are removed a fire will be extinguished. I have not found any information on this in the online class or the book

Because the boat itself can be considered a fuel source making “removing the fuel” the correct response.
