Flour-filled extinguishers found in China

In Chengdu, police officials recently seized almost 10,000 fake fire extinguishers, according to Weird Asia News.

The fake fire extinguishers were found to release flour rather than extinguishing powder.

A test was conducted to see the difference between both the original and the fake ones. The real thing extinguished flames as expected, whilst the fake extinguishers worked only by smothering the fire.
