Apparently the law does not mandate a sfh rental to have a fire extinguishe, but CA does mandate smoke alarms and CO detectors.
No one has been able to cite CA state law that expands or limits the definition of "occupants."
So that being said, the responsibility rests on the tenants if they signed the rental agreement accepting responsibility for servicing/maintaining the fire extinguisher provided for them by the LL.
Here's some extra info that is from the office of the state fire marshall, dated 2005, but NOTHING AT THIS SITE addresses case law where "occupants" exclude the actual tenants as occupants: http://www.glendale.edu/fire/Documents/ClassMaterials/Fire_Extinguishers/CSFM%20Fire%20Extinguisher%20Study%20Guide.pdf
