No, purely from my industrial training, "BCF" extinguishers.CO2 will suffocate. Water will conduct electricity and drive flammables further over the body or face dependent the burning chemical.
Paul - did you mean Halon Gas? In any case, Halon fire suppression systems work by supplanting the oxygen and suffocating the fire in closed environments (Any people who don't manage to get out of the room before it's triggered will suffocate too. That's assuming that they don't get injured by flying floor/ceiling tiles first).
The first best and fastest is stop drop and role, smother it.
Fire blanket. Or rolling on the floor. Or ideally both.

I shal hot-foot to a local lady of ill repute to see how good she is at smothering me with her fishnets."No need to take them off miss"
