Use alcohol foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Use graphite, soda ash, powdered sodium chloride, or suitable dry powder. Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources.
May ignite on contact with moist air or moisture. May burn rapidly with flare-burning effect. Some react vigorously or explosively on contact with water. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May re-ignite after fire is extinguished. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
