Good point. Food for thought:
The rollover situation I saw yesterday made me realize that having an extinguisher is probably more likely to be useful for others. Also, the fire started on the bottom of the car from the fluids leaking on all the hot stuff under the car. So, the mess was really no big deal. In this particular case the car was already totaled, so really the only thing being saved was whatever she had left inside when she climbed out.
Of course if you are cooking food in the van, different story. Well, depending on your culinary skills of course...
