How To Put Out Fire Caused By Cylinder Leak: Delhi Cop's Video Goes Viral

NEW DELHI:  LPG cylinders have made life so much easier for thousands of households. By providing a clean and convenient mode for cooking, they have come as a boon. However, these cylinders are highly flammable, which means that leaks in LPG cylinders make for one of the most common cause of fires in India. In such a scenario, it is very important to know how to extinguish fires caused by gas leaks. Perhaps that is why this video is going viral on social media.

A video uploaded on Facebook by policeman Sushil Kumar has been viewed almost 6 million times in just two days. In the video, the policeman can be seen demonstrating to a group of people the correct way to extinguish a fire caused by a cylinder leak. A huge group of people, presumably residents of a Delhi colony, can be seen gathered around him in the video.

In the video, Mr Kumar suggests wrapping a wet cloth tightly around a cylinder fire to put it out. He explains how the lack of oxygen will extinguish the fire. However, we suggest you call emergency services in case of a fire before trying this out.

Since being shared online on March 19, the instructional video has been shared over 2 lakh times. Many have thanked Mr Kumar for spreading awareness. "Very thoughtful. Something that all of us should know, this may be a matter of life and death.Thanks," says one commenter.

A life hack we hope you won't ever have to use.
