PISTOL DISCHARGE STOPS FIRE AT PULL OF TRIGGER (Mar, 1924)
PISTOL DISCHARGE STOPS FIRE AT PULL OF TRIGGER
Shaped like a pistol, a fire extinguisher which shoots a forceful stream of flame-smothering liquid into a blaze at a pull on the trigger, has been invented and tested with favorable results in England. The instrument is noiseless, is handled easily and the heart of the blaze can be reached quickly by the concentrated jet which spurts to a considerable distance from the muzzle. The fluid is contained in cylinders loaded into the pistol. Because of its compact shape and small size it can be kept in a drawer for instant use. In a trial test, flames from a wardrobe saturated with oil were put out in a few moments by “fire” from the handy gun.
