one page? surrounded by marble and stone? why did he need a fire extinguisher?

At the Ohel the pan-s are burned

What do you think happens to the pan at the Ohel – eventually it gets burned! He went straight to the final step!

It's not uncommon

A lot of people burn notes to Tzaddikim, it was a big question concerning the notes of the Kotel, to burn them or to bury them, they bury them. Burning is associated with purification, and fire is associated with spirituality as it rises and is only held down by the physical thing it is attached to… etc
