     combustible material to the fire. Water may be used to cool unbroken containers
     exposed to heat.

     Decomposition Products: Burning may generate CO, CO2, acrid smoke and fumes,
     as well as other unidentified hazardous organic compounds. Avoid inhaling fumes.

     Special Protective Equipment: Self-contained breathing apparatus and protective
     clothing.
