Fire extinguishers may be lethal Citizens are being warned by the Sonoma County Coroner's office to check their pre-1975 fire extinguishers and if the label says they contain carbon tetrachloride to take them to a fire department or the sheriff's department for emptying or disposal. Though still in the midst of a seven- mbnth investigation, investigators of ,the Sonoma County Coronor's office have determined that a fire ex- tinguisher containing carbon tetrachloride as the fire-dousing agent was responsible for the death of a 15- year old Petaluma boy last December. According to the Coronor's office report the Petaluma boy's death shows that he was cleaning an old brass fire extinguisher in a trailer, and the carbon tetrachloride leaking out became ex- posed to the carbon of the heating element of an electric heater, forming phosgene gas. The. boy went to sleep and died six hours later of pulmonary edema; the phosgene became cloroform in his system and his lungs filled with liquid. Though he could not totally verify it, Deputy Coroner Tom Siebe'said, "We believe this to be the cause of death. Officially, the cause is listed as "Positional Asphyxiation". "That old fire extinguisher gathering cobwebs in the barn or hanging ready for an emergency in the house, or in a place of business may in itself be lethal. "Siebe explained. The universal proliferation of the extinguishers and their lethal properties were first linked in 1961, but their manufacture beeane illegal and discontinued from use since 1964. Their manufacture was not legally banned in California until 1975.

It was an extinguisher  as this believed to be the cause of the death of a 15 year old youth.  by Janlee.
