This is one of the several Firex fire grenades we found when we purchased our century old home in Central Illinois. Made in St. Louis MO, they are full of a chemical called Carban Tetrachloride and from what I have researched, somewhat dangerous. Each is labeled and mounted in a fitting that makes it possible to break the bottle. The bottles are glass and the phrase "Throw at the base of flames" is printed on each. I'd love to learn more about these things so I am very open to more information! (especially because I have read some unsettling information regarding the chemical) Thanks!
