R2-D2 putting out a fire on the Millennium Falcon

A fire extinguisher, sometimes known as a flame douser[1] was a tool used to put out fires with the use of some sort of fire-retardant material, such as halon.[2]

In 0 BBY, after escaping from the first Death Star, R2-D2 put out a small fire that was started on the Millennium Falcon after it took several hits from pursuing TIE fighters. A few years later, he again made use of his built-in extinguisher while on Cloud City. This time it was used as a smokescreen to blind the stormtroopers that were chasing them.
