Take a cotton cloth and make it wet thoroughly by seeping it into a bucket of water or by the kitchen sink tap and placing it on the burning cylinder to quench the fire immediately.

The wet cloth prevents the supply of more oxygen to the flaming fire which is the main source of combustion and thereby turning of the fire.
