Re: [DML] Importance of a Fire Extinguisher



I couldn't agree more. One of our club members has had TWO fires in his car. Totally unrelated, one was an electrical problem with a loose connection at the bulkhead. The other was a silly late night repairs mistake.

The first one was handled with a normal extinguisher. It did the job, but it took some time and several hits and there was a lot of damage including fiberglass issues. The clean up was actually the worst part.
 
The second was a fuel fire. The halon snuffed that out in seconds on the 1st hit and limited the damage to a fuel line and a piece of the engine wiring that was directly in the flames. Clean up was a snap, halon leaves nothing behind.

I carry only halon.
