Default Putting out your charcoal

Important but not interesting.

Over the weekend, we unexpectedly had a bunch of kids in the neighborhood show up to play in our back yard. I had finished my cook for the evening but the coals were still hot. So I dumped em in a steel trash can and hosed em down with water.

I often feel uncomfortable with letting my embers burn themselves out since we have major problems with wild fires. Like this one two miles away. (

Is there anything wrong with dumping the water and coal chunks on my lawn? Does it contain lye or any chemicals that will kill the lawn?

Also, what do you do to put out your coals immediately when/if you find a need arises?

Thanks all.
