Alcohol floats unless physically made to mix with water, xylene floats
even if mixed; sprinklers appear to be an efficient system in
disseminating the fire all over the place. Chip Fat fires in the UK must
emulate flaming paraffin wax and we incinerate loads of betas by them
getting drunk, putting on the chip pan, it igniting and them waking up
in a drunken stupor and throwing water at it. In an attempt to save this
valuable commodity we ask them to put a dampened cloth over it after
turning of the flames; wonder where they get that from. Their trousers?
