In case of oil fires, water is not suitable for extinguishing the fire because diseal is less dense than water and will float in water. As water will spread, such the oil will spread and the fire will become more uncontrolable. Thus carbon dioxide helps to extinguish the fire by cutting off oxygen supply

Petrol or kerosene will be hot. If we through water it may burst and as water is heaver than these two things water may sink and the fire continues to burn

we cannot use water to extinguish the fire caused by petrol,diesel and kerosene because oil,water,kerosene they are immiscible liquids and lighter than water
hence,fire will not be extinguished we can use fire extinguisher and sand
