Triangle Of Combustion - Oxygen Removed
Cooling
Removing the heat
Wet Chemical extinguishes Class A Fires by cooling the burning material and removing the heat from the combustion triangle.
Wet Chemical extinguishes Class F Fires by covering the flammable liquid with a foam blanket which then form a crust on top of the cooking oil or fat , thus cutting off the oxygen supply from the combustion process.  The water content of the foam will help lower the temperature of the flammable liquid.
Remove any side of the triangle and the fire (combustion) can not exist
