Fire Fighting Procedures: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. 
Apply alcohol-type or all purpose-type foams by manufacturers recommended techniques for large fires. 
Use carbon dioxide or dry chemical media for small fires. 

Do not direct a solid stream of water or foam into hot burning pools; this may cause frothing and increase fire intensity.
