Saturday, the Freemasons of Minnesota held a demonstration of a new type of Fire Suppression Tool (FST) at Lake Superior Colleges’ Emergency Response Training Center. They hope to raise funds to donate the device to communities across Northeastern Minnesota.

The FST is an aerosolized unit designed to be thrown into any room with a fire. When deployed it produces a thick cloud that interrupts the heat and the oxygen bind in the fire and can reduce the heat of the fire.
