I'm still keeping my eyes open for a couple of old bcf units but they are rare as rocking horse manure

Been there and done that. I can vouch for dry powder, messy, but the knock- down is superb.
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.

Got side tracked earlier

See how fast the last few extinguishers snuffed out the fire once they got the engine compartment open .. if they'd have got the bonnet up sooner they wouldn't have needed as many extinguishers... 2 I think in the end once the lid was up and a few bottles of water :D

I'm wondering where it was filmed where so many
A) had extinguishers
B) were prepared to get stuck in

Guessing where ever it was has a requirement for all vehicles to carry them and a requirement to render aid

Was good to see
