Home aquarium starts AND stops fire

Fire investigators determined the fire erupted in the vicinity of a large, unspecified aquarium within the home.  As the fire grew, blackening the walls and filling the home with smoke, the intense heat broke the aquarium; In a twist of fate, fire department officials believe aquarium water doused and extinguished the flames, saving the house from being completely burned to the ground.

I can’t help but think there’s a lesson in all this.
