Not sure if anyone is following Bathurst 1000 on Channel 7 - but a dangerous crash invovling car 17 - then spilt fuel ignited spontaneously into a wall of fire... Great job by the fire marshalls though for a job well done protecting the driver! Kudos to them.!

Yeah, saw that. Did anyone catch a glimpse of what the first marshall that went for the left rear side used? It didn't look like powder.

From the replay, it was a blue banded extinguisher - foam.

From memory the Australian & New Zealand standards for portable fire extinguishers are:
All red or polished stainless steel: water
Red with a black band: Carbon dioxide
Red with a blue band: Foam
Red with a white band: Dry powder
Red with a yellow band: Vaporising liquid
Red with a oatmeal band: Wet powder

So probably not CO2. That site had a lot more info on it than the US one I looked at earlier. Still the MSDS had the ingredients are 'trade secret'.
