Re: How do you dispose of hot coals?
just poor a bit of water on them, they cool down pretty fast. I've once neglected a coal on the carpet not knowing it was there until later. Not saying it's the wisest thing to do with fire, but all the harm it did was smolder a hole into the carpet until it finally just snuffed out. The best approach would be water, and a proper tin / metal container until you can properly dispose of it.
