I’d be more leery of a spark, that stuff is combustible.

“A FLAMMABLE LIQUID like gasoline, lacquer thinner, alcohol, some paint thinners, etc. are much more volatile — their vapors can ignite below 100° F, even down to freezing and below.”

“Paint thinners at high levels can also be a fire/explosive hazard. I recall one instance where two workers were cleaning the floor of the plant on a Saturday morning of sticky resin by pouring paint thinner on the floor. They took a thirty-minute break to let the paint thinner soak in and loosen up the resin. When they returned to work, they used a metal scrapper. It caused a spark resulting in a vapor explosion. By the time the sprinklers activated, it was too late. Neither man survived.”
