I only mentioned the factory because it was an EXTREME fire load. Yeh, they did stand back and watch for a couple of days I thinkA coward stands by and watches wrongs committed without saying a word...Any opinions expressed are purely my own and not necessarily reflective of the views of my former departments

Produce water fog curtain to shield themselves from the heat of a fire.
If the addition of a fire fighting agent intensifies the reaction (which suggests magnesium has become involved), fire fighting operation with water should be stopped.
If it continues to smoke or sizzle after the flames are out, hydrogen is being produced. The addition of water, if indoors, should be stopped since it can increase hydrogen generation.I can think of no more stirring symbol of man's humanity to man than a fire engine.

I just keep hitting it with water, because I like the bright flash.
Seriously, though, if you add copious amounts of water, you'll do one of two things:
1. Put it out.
2. Make it burn faster, thereby putting it out.
It's just a car, not a magnesium plant. Keep some distance, and put water on it.

Small Class D fires
What we use in my fire department and at the International Speedway that I volunteer at is a 2.5 gallon water extinguisher filled with 9 quarts of water and 1 quart od Cold Fire. That makes a 10% solution that very quickly cools off the fire and extinguish it. It also works on small alumumin and titainium fires."Your spill is our thrill."

One option that no one has addressed is purple K. I know the Navy uses it on Carriers to put out Magnesium wheels on aircraft and keep them from burning big holes in the flight deck.
