Ok, so I just had a small fire in the shop.
We did too. My husband was pouring silver tonight, and some molten
metal spattered from the top of the flask on the vacuum machine onto
pair of heavy leather welding gloves that were laying nearby. My
first question is why was he not wearing the gloves? Anyway, one
glove caught on fire in several small areas. It went out quickly, but
continued to smoke. Burning leather stinks! My husband calmly
continued what he was doing, while I grabbed a small bowl of water I
use for rinsing things as they come out of the pickle pot (no sink in
my shop). I sprinkled water on the smoldering gloves, and muttered
something about holy water. His instant reply was "Forgive me father,
for I have singe-d"......
And I had a brand new fire extinguisher sitting right out in the
open on a bench not 4 feet away the whole time. When we do those
safety reviews, we need to train our brains to respond to emergencies
