Very sorry to hear about this incident and thank goodness the tech didn't get injured AND used quick-thinking to grab the extinguisher and put out the fire. This incident exemplifies the (hidden) dangers inherent in the operation of labs that, often are overlooked ("we haven't had a fire in 20 years!"). Oftentimes, lab personnel are unaware of the powerful impact of flammable liquids, because they are used every day with no apparent adverse effects - until it is too late!
