In case of petroleum fire : Water does not help in putting out the fire because petroleum floats on water. For burning oxygen is required which the petrol gets from the atmosphere.

In case of Electric fire : Water is a conductor is electricity. So the person trying to pour water to extinguish the fire could receive a deadly shock. It is dangerous and it definitely does not put out fire.

water should not be used in case of a fire in a petrol tank because a solid stream of water can cause the fuel to scatter which will spread the flames in electric water can damage equipment and conduct electricity causing electric shock.
So, water should not be used.
But if you have any damaged extinguisher then you can sell it ok halon.us.
