6 Acre Brush Fire Contained Near Santa Maria

Fire extinguishers should be carried in ALL vehicles. If small roadside fire, pull over. If you don't know how to use extinguisher, hand it to someone who does. Put out a small roadside fire before it becomes a killer and destroyer fire. We all can participate now. Important.

A class A water, or a class A B C, dry chemical for a 10-20 lb. extinguisher lasts 10-25 seconds. One would have to be there when the fire ignited if it were a vegetation fire. I carry one in both vehicles but they're good for maybe a barbecue , engine compartment or to hold back a vehicle interior fire long enough to rescue someone.
