AbstractWater, as conventionally used in fire fighting, is sometimes not effective in extinguishing fires in large buildings or in basements and inaccessible attics. It is suggested that some of these fires could be put out by using an inert gas on a very large scale. Techniques that would allow to produce an appropriate gas on a suitable scale are reviewed.
