Just for fun: the reason why not to fill fire extinguishers with dinitrogen oxide instead of carbon dioxide. We ignited a small amount (few cm3) of toluene on a piece of aluminium foil and blew dinitrogen oxide on it. The results were great, as seen on the picture.   Since the dinitrogen oxide acts as an oxidizer (it is used in rockets also) it helps the toluene to burn really-really fast.
