This reminded me of the old glass fire extinguishers. After a quick check I found there was the exact same thing in 1723 England. It consisted of a cask of fire-extinguishing liquid containing a pewter chamber of gunpowder. This was connected with a system of fuses which were ignited, exploding the gunpowder and scattering the solution.

Not really new, but they are awesome. Expensive, too. Not as expensive as a runaway inferno, though.
