Answer-

Saline hydrides are known to react with water violently and produce fire.

MH(s)+H_{2}O\rightarrow MOH(aq)+H_{2}(g) this is the general reaction formula. We see that the product is a base and hydrogen gas.

Carbon dioxide is heavier than oxygen. It is used in fire extinguisher because it cuts the supply of oxygen by acting as a blanket on fire.

Carbon dioxide can be used in nowadays and it is heavier than dihydrogen also so that it will isolate the burning surface from H_{2} and O_{2}
