One might also ask which lab, where, when?
Back to the (valid) reccomen=mendation to have a fire extinguisher handy:
Be familiar with the TYPES of extinsuishers, some are rated for electrical
fires, some not. (I think its 'Type C' for 'all fires', but may be rong.)
Ideally, kill power before using, however there may not be time, the 'right'
extinguisher may be important.
