Fire blankets can be used on any small source of fire. They are typical used when traditional fire extinguisher are not appropriate for example; an oil fire were the only available extinguisher is water based. I you are not sure whether or not to use an extinguisher or a blanket don't tell somebody or activate an alarm.
