I used to have a Jensen Interceptor that came from the factory with a Fire Extinguisher. They installed it because the fuse box was below the master cylinder. If you have ever owned a British car you know there hydraulics leak and brake fluid conducts electricity, not a good mix with there bad electricals! Guess it was cheaper to put a extinguisher than to move the fuse box. But the car was FAST Chrysler big block and all!

Phil at the 800 number at the top of the screen may be able to help, give him a call if you haven't already done so.
I would also be curious as to what the cause of the fire was, if you would be able to share this information.
My motto is to be as prepared as practical for any unforseen situation, so I always travel with a fire extinguisher in my car. Sure my friends may find it funny, but hey you never know
