The Minimum Explosive Concentration for some organic solids as a dust may be as low as 0.025 oz/ft3 or ^,20 g/m3.

Suitable extinguishing media
Dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide, water fog.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire. Protection of Firefighters/Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical
Exclude air; treat like a gasoline or oil fire. Wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, protective clothing and face mask.
   
ACCIDENTAL RELEASE, SPILL, LEAK PROCEDURES
Personal Precautions
Follow facility/company's emergency plans.

Environmental Precautions
Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Eliminate sources of ignition. Ventilate the contaminated area. Material will be HOT as a liquid. One may consider allowing the material to cool as part of a response plan. Contain the spill and prevent the material from obtaining access to any confined spaces, public sewers, or waterways.

Methods for Clean-Up
Ventilate the contaminated area. Eliminate ignition sources including sources of electrical, static or frictional sparks. Material will be HOT when in a liquid state. Be sure any absorbents used can withstand the temperature. One may wish to allow it to cool before attempting to collect the material using absorbents, non-sparking tools, explosion-proof vacuums or other equipment required by the size of the release. When material is cool, manage the release as a solid. For example, one can: collect solids, place them into an appropriate container, properly label the container, and then close the container. Immediately arrange for the containers to be placed in an appropriate waste handling area for ultimate transportation or disposal. Thoroughly clean the release area with a suitable agent and collect any cleaning, rinsing media(s) for proper reclamation or disposal. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment during cleanup activities.

Other Information
Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Determine appropriate course of action for the collected material. Regulations vary. Consult local authorities before disposal.
