Carbon Dioxide is able to control fire as it is not a supporter of combustion hence it forms a blanket around and cut off the supply of air so the fire gets extinguished.

CO2 is able to control firesCO2 being heavier than oxygen, covers the fire like blanket and also brings down the temperature of fuel. Since, contact between the fuel and oxygen is cut off the fire comes under control.

 Carbon Dioxide [CO2] controls, and can extinguish, a fire due to the fact that the addition of CO2 to the air, results in reducing the relative percentage of Oxygen [O2] to a concentration below that necessary for combustion ["burning"] to occur.
