everything immediately (after calling the Fire dept). Call the FD? Why yes,
I have investigated several fires that burned down the place after it was put
out by the owner. >>
FYI, Halon fire extinguishers ARE stil available...but not cheap. Try an
aviation supply store. I'll give you some names if you're interested.
