Best Answer

Typically with really big fire extinguisher. If the car is fully engulfed, only the fire department will have the resources to extinguish the fire. If it is in the engine compartment, and has only begun to smolder or is quite small, sometimes slamming the hood will blow the fire out. Do not waste much time doing this though, with inside hood releases, this can be dangerous.

Should I put a fire blanket in an emergency car kit?

Fire blankets are used to smother fires by depriving them of oxygen. Whilst it would not be essential for a car first aid kit it would be useful. Note that a car fire blanket is different to a household fire blanket and will not replace a fire extinguisher.
